Flamingo Road originally was called Monson Road, and only existed east of Las Vegas Boulevard, with a nearby street, Dunes Road connecting Las Vegas Boulevard with Interstate 15 (I-15). In the early 1980s, the Nevada Department of Transportation rebuilt the Dunes interchange at I-15, and constructed a six-lane Flamingo Road west to Rainbow Boulevard.

The segment between I-15 and Las Vegas Boulevard remained named Dunes-Flamingo Road until 1995.

The portion of SR 592 between I-15 and Paradise Road was decommissioned by 2008.

The route is a candidate to be decommissioned with control given to Clark County; however, only the above section located in the resort corridor has been relinquished as of January 2008.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Clark County.
