Serving the employees of the Bellagio Resort and City Center, the Bellagio employee parking garage consists of 5,160 parking spacing in a 10 story structure. The parking structure served as a replacement for the existing parking lot that was used for development of the City Center project.
Lochsa Engineering provided traffic design services in integrating the project driveways with the existing roadway network adjacent to the project. This involved the addition of auxiliary lanes for turning movements at the main entrance along Frank Sinatra Drive and the installation of a traffic signal at the entrance. Design challenges included taking in account signal head sight lines as the driveway exited the parking structure with minimal setback from the adjacent street. Flood control design efforts included hydraulic modeling of the Tropicana Wash-North Branch Breakout flows against the Garage building.
