LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The Super Bowl will bring plenty of fun and excitement to Las Vegas, but it will also bring its share of congestion to the roadways surrounding both Allegiant Stadium and the Las Vegas Strip.

Resort-casino workers already telling FOX5 that their commute times are starting to reach F1 levels. They’re saying it’s taking them around 90 minutes right now, with that time increasing every day.

Workers at the north and south ends of the Strip say it’s easier to get to their properties. However, the problem starts when they try to pull into the parking garage.

“It’s pretty intense. It can get rather frustrating sometimes. I’ve had a couple of nights that I’m trying to get home and I’ve been stuck up there on the tenth floor for two hours,” says Ursula Ontiveros.

Clark County has rolled out an alert system it hopes will help drivers stay on top of road closures.

You can text “S-B-L-V” to 31996 to sign up for a weekly traffic update. That system provides new details for the week ahead on Sundays.
