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.
We had some more info on new signage coming to downtown @CityOfLasVegas at yesterday’s City Council meeting. We first announced this at the #stateofvegas in January. Excited! pic.twitter.com/I1ngvsVzt6

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.
