LAS VEGAS - A viewer says a new message board with drive times is needed on U.S. 95 before the Rancho Drive exit.
An added freeway message board would give drivers the option to exit at Rancho and use surface streets before getting stuck in Spaghetti Bowl gridlock.
The Nevada Department of Transportation handles construction of those message boards. Traffic8 suggested a new message board in the area, but NDOT officials say it is unlikely to happen.
NDOT officials say the sign on U.S. 95 at Valley View Boulevard already serves this purpose. A message board before Rancho would not give drivers enough "decision time" to make the exit.
So, the U.S. 95 and Valley View sign represents drivers' final warning before they reach the Spaghetti Bowl.
