In all the talk about a new stadium on UNLV’s campus, I haven’t seen a word written about how anyone will get to the stadium.

As a limousine driver, I am aware of the back-ups that occur on Tropicana Avenue and the airport connector when there is an event at the Thomas & Mack Center or at MGM’s arena.

I also have sat in traffic in the area of Sam Boyd Stadium before and after events. With a much larger venue being planned, has any consideration been given to the fact that you may not actually be able to get there with the current infrastructure of roads?
