Raiders stadium traffic study: Off-site parking, pedestrian bridge over I15 recommended

LAS VEGAS - Off-site parking and a new pedestrian bridge are just two of the recommendations proposed to accommodate fans at the Raiders Stadium planned just west of the Las Vegas Strip.

According to an event traffic impact study, there are 2,400 planned parking spots on-site.  Clark County parking codes require 16,250 spots for the 65,000 seat stadium.

There are no specific off-site parking lots planned yet, though the report mentions the possibility of teaming up with the RTC for bus service or shuttle service from local neighborhood casinos.

The Kimley-Horn and Associates study mentions the stadium's proximity to Las Vegas Boulevard means more pedestrians are expected to make their way to games on foot than most other NFL stadiums.

Also recommended to handle pedestrians: a new pedestrian bridge across I15.  That bridge would connect the stadium to Las Vegas Boulevard and allow tourists staying on the strip to walk to the stadium.  This would also likely open up access for locals to park in casino parking garages and walk to games.
