The city of Las Vegas began construction on the new Neon Boneyard Park on the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard at McWilliams Avenue, in downtown Las Vegas. Work is scheduled to take approximately 10 months.

The $1.9-million improvement project includes construction of a half-acre public park and areas to display neon signs, in partnership with the Neon Museum, that have been preserved from Las Vegas’ colorful history. The project also includes the relocation of overhead utility lines and construction of passive recreation space and landscaping enhancements.

The city’s Neon Boneyard Park is located along the section of Las Vegas Boulevard that recently earned designation as a National Scenic Byway and is in the heart of the Las Vegas Cultural Corridor. Tand Inc. is the construction contractor.

Crews with Capriati Construction are also working on a $1.5-million project to install and upgrade the power infrastructure for the city of Las Vegas Symphony Park.
