15-mile segment of the huge Interstate 11 highway project opened today. Also known as the Boulder City Bypass, the route will lessen the traveling time from Las Vegas to the Arizona border near Hoover Dam by 30 minutes and provide scenic views of Lake Mead and surrounding areas. Several sculptures and a mural depicting the construction of the dam have also been assembled along the drive. The I-11 project that will eventually run from Mexico to Canada is the first addition to the federal interstate system since 1992.

Japan’s parliament has passed a law that allows up to three casinos in the country. It hasn’t been determined where the casinos will be located or which companies will get the concessions, but this will get the sweepstakes started, with 2020 considered to be the earliest these decisions will be finalized and 2025 the earliest a resort could open. MRI, CET, Sands, and Wynn are all expected to vie for a spot, with Sheldon Adelson recently stating that Sands has the inside track in what’s being projected as a $21 billion market upon opening.

World Buddhism Association has purchased the 12.2-acre vacant lot on Sahara Avenue and Paradise Road between the SLS and the Las Vegas Monorail operations center for $17.5 million. Though an article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that “the buyers don’t have the money to start construction,” the plan is to build a Buddhist temple “for philanthropic purposes to benefit the public.” The article quotes an Asian religions professor saying that a Buddhist temple a block from the Strip would be “deeply ironic,” given the “contemplative context” in which Buddhist temples are usually built.

A welcome sign featuring two 26-foot-tall showgirls and the words “City of Las Vegas,” will be dedicated tonight at its location at the intersection of Las Vegas Blvd. and Main Street, just north of the Stratosphere. The $400,000 sign, near the gateway to the city, is expected to turn into the kind of iconic photo op that the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada” sign has been for decades. As such, Stratosphere is carving out a nearby parking lot that will open in a month.
