New welcome sign coming to downtown Las Vegas

Updated May 17, 2018 - 7:50 pm

The city of Las Vegas is getting close to replacing its welcome sign in downtown.

The city had a Welcome to Fabulous Downtown Las Vegas sign for a few years on Las Vegas Boulevard North and East St. Louis Avenue. Its design was copied from the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign on the Las Vegas Strip. The downtown sign was destroyed when it was hit by a vehicle in 2016.

The new sign uses the city’s current Las Vegas logo and will incorporate arches. It will be in the same location, just north of the Stratosphere.

The cost is estimated at $60,000.
