SR 595 begins at Tropicana Avenue (formerly the western terminus of State Route 593 at this junction) and proceeds north along Rainbow Boulevard for 5.494 miles (8.842 km) to US 95 (at the interchange locally known as the "Rainbow Curve"). The state-maintained portion of Rainbow Boulevard is a designated portion of the National Highway System.[1]

In January 2003, the southern terminus of SR 595 was at State Route 160 (Blue Diamond Road, Pahrump Valley Road), giving the highway a total distance of 10.846 miles (17.455 km). By January 2006, the highway had been truncated to its current terminus at Tropicana Avenue.

Rainbow Boulevard

Rainbow Boulevard begins south of Blue Diamond Road (SR 160) in Clark County and continues north to Horse Drive in northern Las Vegas.[2] Prior to the completion of Durango Drive north of Blue Diamond Road, Rainbow Boulevard was one of only two roads west of I-15 that connected Blue Diamond road with the developed areas to the north. The other road was Industrial Road now Dean Martin Drive.[3]
