Red Rock loop road might close if busy

Public lands officials are bracing for high volumes of traffic during Thanksgiving Day weekend at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

The Bureau of Land Management announced that the 13-mile scenic drive might be temporarily closed during periods of high visitation. Road signs will be posted on Route 159 if the road is closed. Visitors may call 702-515-5350 to find out whether the scenic drive is open.

The visitor center will be open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. all weekend, and the scenic drive will be open 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.
