LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- The countdown begins for the New Year’s Eve celebrations, and that means agencies have just a few more days to prep for America's Party.

The Nevada Department of Transportation expects more than 300,000 people to come to the valley, most of whom will be on the Las Vegas Strip.

That means road restrictions and closures.

Interstate 15 ramps eastbound on Flamingo, Tropicana and Spring Mountain will close starting at 4 pm on New Year’s Eve.

The Regional Transportation Commission says bus rides will be free Dec. 31 from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. New Year’s Day.

AAA's Tipsy Tow Service will provide a free ride for you and your car from 6 p.m. New Year’s Eve to 6 a.m. New Year’s Day.

NDOT is asking people to be patient and expect congested roads.

Keep in mind, metal and glass containers will be banned on the strip and in downtown areas starting at 6 p.m.

There'll be a 9 p.m. Strip curfew in effect for anyone younger than 18 not with an adult.

Avoid carrying large backpacks or bags, and remember that celebratory gunfire is illegal and dangerous.
