State Route 607 was a major north–south section line arterial serving the Las Vegas Valley including Las Vegas, Nevada and North Las Vegas. The highway followed Eastern Avenue in Las Vegas and continued on Civic Center Drive in North Las Vegas.

Route description[edit]

State Route 607 began at Sahara Avenue (SR 589) at the Las Vegas city limit. It followed Eastern Avenue northward towards Owens Avenue, where the roadway entered the City of North Las Vegas and changed names to Civic Center Drive. SR 607 continued north to pass through downtown North Las Vegas before terminating at Cheyenne Avenue (SR 574).

History[edit]

North of the "Five Points" intersections with Charleston Boulevard (SR 159) and Fremont Street (SR 582), SR 607 shifted slightly eastward to run over the former 25th Street alignment as it headed towards North Las Vegas.

Nevada DOT had plans to abandon the route from the state's highway system. By January 2008, the route had been completely relinquished to local control.[2]

Public transport[edit]

RTC Transit Route 110 functions on this road.
