LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – We’re seeing our first signs that the Super Bowl is coming to Las Vegas.

Early Tuesday morning our FOX5 Rover caught crews closing down the Bellagio sidewalk, as well as two lanes of traffic on Las Vegas Boulevard. The closures make space for the construction of a large broadcast platform and stage for Super Bowl LVIII, which will be played on February 11th.

Clark County Commissioners and MGM Resorts originally stated work would begin Wednesday, January 3rd, but our Rover and traffic cameras confirm, the work started a day early.

The county does tell FOX5 two lanes of southbound Las Vegas Boulevard, between Flamingo Road and Bellagio Drive, will remain closed through at least February 16th. One lane will offer pedestrian access during the closure.

And this is just the first of many shutdowns to come. Starting next week, roads around Allegiant Stadium will begin to close to create a security perimeter around the venue.

  • Jan. 8-Feb. 15 – Allegiant Stadium Way and Al Davis Way – fully closed
