Driving You Crazy: Lane Confusion at Maryland and Sahara

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - A viewer says lane confusion on southbound Maryland Parkway at Sahara Avenue causes gridlock and long delays.

The viewer says the confusion stems from drivers who are uncertain if they are in the left turn lane or straight lane.

City of Las Vegas engineers say the two left turn lanes at this intersection include left-turn arrows that are clearly visible on the ground. Each lane contains an arrow. A sign above the intersection also directs drivers into the proper lanes.

The road skews slightly in the middle of the intersection as it transitions from city to county jurisdiction. Field observation of traffic, however, showed "good understanding of lane usage" according to researchers.

City officials studied the intersection and did not uncover any issues. They say they will continue to monitor this area and may install additional signage or markings if they are warranted.
