LAS VEGAS -- A viewer questions why they can't get from Dean Martin Dr. to westbound Hacienda Ave.
The viewer says a sign that reads "Hacienda Access" is misleading because once drivers get to the actual turn, they can only turn right. After that, there's no place to make a U-turn, so there's no way to go left.
U-turns in the area are restricted because of the proximity to the Hacienda Overpass. In order for a left turn to be possible, drivers would have to go onto a little loop street called Aldebaran Ave.
The intersection raises a safety concern because the setup restricts drivers' vision. The line of sight for westbound traffic coming over the Hacienda Bridge is limited. That's why left turns are not allowed.
Depending on your destination, here are some alternate routes from Dean Martin Dr.
- Take Tropicana Ave. to Valley View Blvd.
- Take Ali Baba Ln. to Polaris Ave. or Valley View Blvd.
