Centennial Plaza to close temporarily in downtown Las Vegas

Updated April 22, 2019 - 4:25 pm

Centennial Plaza at the Historic Fifth Street School will be closed to the public for several weeks starting Tuesday as it undergoes transformation to a special event area, city officials say.

The city is funding the plaza’s conversion. The work will be done by contractors and city staff working together.

Upgrades to the plaza, at 401 S. Fourth St., will include fences, landscaping, a new small turf area, and cleaning, painting and sealing.
