Skywalk Alternative

(a.k.a. the Elevated Pedestrian Mall)

Please click map to download high-resolution pdf.

Elevated Pedestrian Mall

Concept. Concrete bridge/pedestrian walkway along the casino corridor.
Location. Entire width and length of existing US 50 between Stateline Avenue and the eastern end of Montbleu Resort.
Access. Escaltors at both ends and multiple elevators.

Wider Stateline Ave.

As Part of Skywalk Alternative. Between existing US 50 and Pine Blvd., widened to one lane in each direction with two-way-left-turn lane and sidewalks. Right-of-way exists for widening, but two California businesses with improvements within public right-of-way would be impacted.
