Expect heavier traffic around the Strip as lane closures begin today to allow event setup for the 2022 NFL Draft.

Those lane closures will include:

— The outside eastbound lane of Flamingo from 200 feet west of the Bellagio north porte cochere to the Bellagio north porte cochere.

— The outside eastbound lane of Flamingo from the Bellagio north porte cochere through the outside lane of channelized right-turn at Las Vegas Boulevard.

— The southbound curb lane on Koval from Winnick Avenue to Krueger Drive.

The closures will run through May 6 to allow for event breakdown.

The NFL Draft takes place April 28-30, with the red carpet stage set to be located over the Fountains of Bellagio and the draft theater and Draft Experience planned to be in an area directly behind the Linq.

The Strip will essentially be closed in front of the Bellagio and on Flamingo Road between Las Vegas Boulevard and Koval Lane. The shutdown of what will be the center of all draft activity is slated to begin at 10 p.m. April 27 and run through 9 p.m. April 30.
