Strip traffic restricted overnight to accommodate film shoot

The Strip, between Flamingo Road and Tropicana Avenue, will be down to one lane overnight Wednesday as film crews work on a production, the Metropolitan Police Department says.

All lanes will be shut down for “brief periods of time” from 8 p.m. Tuesday to 7 a.m. Wednesday, Metro says.

Similar restrictions in the area were in place a week ago.

Metro provided no further details on what is being filmed.

In a recent interview with Variety, actor Matt Damon said filming for the latest movie in the Bourne series, which includes a Strip chase, was to start last week.
