State Route 589 (SR 589) comprises a large portion of Sahara Avenue, a major east–west section line road in the Las Vegas Valley. The road is named after the now-defunct Sahara Hotel and Casino which is located on Las Vegas Boulevard where it intersects with Sahara Avenue. The Sahara closed in 2011.
Sahara Avenue begins in the western valley at Red Rock Ranch Road as the continuation of Desert Foothills Drive west of the Las Vegas Beltway. SR 589 begins in the western Las Vegas Valley at its intersection with Rainbow Boulevard (SR 595). From there, the route continues due east to cross Interstate 15 and Las Vegas Boulevard. SR 589 proceeds further east to cross Fremont Street/Boulder Highway (SR 582), entering the unincorporated town of Sunrise Manor, passing under the bridge of I-515/US 93/US 95 and terminating at Nellis Boulevard (SR 612).
Through much of the Las Vegas area, Sahara Avenue comprises the southern boundary of the City of Las Vegas. At the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard, SR 589 marks what is typically considered the northern boundary of the Las Vegas Strip.
Sahara Avenue ends at the Hollywood Regional Park, just east of S Hollywood Boulevard.
Some notable attractions along the highway include the Palace Station Hotel and Casino.
The road was originally called San Francisco Avenue, and served as the southern city limit for Las Vegas.
In the 1960s, city planners envisioned construction of an expressway along Sahara to Rainbow Boulevard.
The entire route is in Clark County.
