I took this in August 1988 of the Grand Canyon. I was on a long flight.

Mile 289 is the Nevada State Line.
I took this in August 1988. I was on a long flight and I could tell I was flying right over old US91 south of Vegas. Back then this was NV604.

Mile 28
This is entering Las Vegas, which occasionally gets snow in the winter, even though it is only 2000' up. Also do not forget there is a short new section of Interstate 11 south of town. This is new. And I11 is proposed to run a long way up north of here.
The speed limit goes up to 75 at the north end of town.

By Exit 55, the speed limit is 75 MPH. In this area you see a sign that says:

Glen Canyon                41
  Salt Lake City             455
