Jones Boulevard description[edit]

Jones Boulevard begins at the intersection of West Erie Ave as the continuation of Star Hills Avenue. It continues north from there towards Blue Diamond Road (SR 160) where the road ends, resuming on the north side of Blue Diamond. From there it continues north across the Las Vegas Valley to Rancho Drive, where Jones Boulevard ends as the roadway turns east to continue as Alexander Road. Jones Boulevard resumes again just north of here, at another intersection of Rancho Drive and Alexander Road, and continues northward until reaching its final terminus just north of its intersection with Jalisco Avenue.

History[edit]

As late as 2006, SR 596 was officially defined to exist in two sections. The southern section began at Tropicana Avenue and ran north along Jones Boulevard 3.061 miles (4.926 km) to the Las Vegas city limits at Sahara Avenue. The northern section resumed at Charleston Boulevard (SR 159) and continued 3.026 miles (4.870 km) north to its terminus at Smoke Ranch Road. As of 2008, the discontinuous section was reincorporated into the route mileage.

In 1996, this route was defined to extend from SR 593 north to State Route 599 (Rancho Drive). By 2001, SR 596 was decommissioned between Sahara Avenue and Charleston Boulevard. As of 2006, the southern portion of this route is pending transfer of control from the Nevada Department of Transportation to Clark County.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Clark County.
