Owens Avenue Reduced To One Lane Each Direction Tomorrow From MLK To J Street
Lane Closures Required For Sewer Line Repairs

The south half of Owens Avenue will be closed to traffic between Martin Luther King Boulevard and J Street in downtown Las Vegas on Saturday, Feb. 20, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastbound traffic will be routed to a single lane on the north half of Owens, and westbound traffic will use a single lane. Motorists are encouraged to avoid this section of Owens, if possible. The temporary lane closures are required while city crews excavate a section of sewer line for repairs. 

During the closure, drivers are encouraged to use West Washington Avenue or West Lake Mead Boulevard as alternate routes.
