Fremont Street Experience sign to show downtown through decades
The Fremont Street Experience is planning to add an LED sign that pays tribute to downtown's rich history.
The sign is set to be built on the east side of Main and Fremont streets. The new addition is part of the Fremont Street Experience's canopy project, a "floor-to-ceiling" renovation on the Fremont Street Experience that includes a $32 million upgrade to its Viva Vision screen.
The display, approximately 27 feet by 14 feet, will offer visitors views of downtown throughout the decades. It could show a still of Fremont Street as a dirt road one moment, then flip to an image of a bustling hangout during the mob era the next. The sign will not be used for any advertisements.
