Vegas is starting to put its stadium parking plan together…hint…there’s not going to be much parking at the stadium:
The plan for the $1.84 billion, 65,000-seat domed stadium includes 2,375 on-site parking spaces, in addition to using four neighboring sites for a total of 14,650 spaces, according to the plan set to be discussed at the Sept. 5 county zoning commission meeting.
The four sites include: the Orleans (4,625 spaces) , a parking lot on Las Vegas Boulevard and Blue Diamond Road (up to 3,625 spots), the former Southwest Gas facility on Arville Street and Tropicana Avenue (1,175 spots) and a parking lot on Las Vegas Boulevard and Arby Avenue (2,500).
Fans who park at off-site lots will be transported to the stadium via shuttle buses, which are estimated to take 5-13 minutes, depending on the parking site.
I wonder what this will mean for the Raiders tailgating scene. I need a centralized parking lot where all the weirdos will show up to drink tequila and Modelos. Honestly, the play here is to wait until the casinos are fighting it out over parking and pick a spot to gamble away a few dollars and get free parking and shuttle. South Point will be a contender.
