The NFL, Raiders and Las Vegas tourism officials are scheduled Tuesday to lay out for county officials the road closures and other plans tied to April’s NFL Draft in Las Vegas.

A presentation listed as “possible road closures for NFL Draft” on the agenda of Tuesday’s Clark County Commission meeting is expected to unveil the NFL and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority’s plans for the draft.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hinted that details would be revealed at the commission meeting while speaking Friday at an event in Las Vegas.

Sources told the Las Vegas Review-Journal the focal points of draft activity, taking place April 23-25, are expected to be the Bellagio and Caesars Forum convention center, with a three-day closure of Las Vegas Boulevard expected among the road closures.

Rolling closures ahead of and after the draft are expected to impact the Strip for up to 20 days total.
