LVMD INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS

Several significant and exciting infrastructure projects are planned to improve access and the ability to move easily and safely around the LVMD for both pedestrians and automobiles.  These include improvements along Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. that were a part of Project Neon with enhancements to sidewalks, streetscape amenities and facilities; expanding transit service to strengthen linkages to Downtown and surrounding areas; creating a mixed-use hub that expands amenities such as open spaces and neighborhood retail for those who work at the District; developing a drought-tolerant greenway to create an appealing and walkable environment; and expanding the bike network to enhance the cycling experience and encourage public health.

Roadway infrastructure improvements are planned to start in 2021 with the goal of improving pedestrian safety, traffic capacity, and utility reliability. Each project will include new sidewalks, streetlights, traffic signals, pavement, landscaping, utility improvements, and a variety of other roadway upgrades.

The current Las Vegas Medical District Area Infrastructure Upgrade Program includes three areas and phases. Funding was secured from the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) for the Shadow Lane project. The remaining projects are part of the RTC’s adopted 10-Year Capital Improvement Plan.

Southern Nevada Strong (SNS) regional plan

Southern Nevada Strong is a collaborative effort to plan, create and sustain neighborhoods where residents can have access to quality education, a variety of housing choices, good-paying jobs and transportation options.

Community Mobility Study

The city of Las Vegas recently completed a comprehensive planning effort to develop a 20-year vision for transportation in our city, known as the Mobility Master Plan. As a 20-year look-ahead, this long-term plan is helping to guide transportation decisions and prioritize public investments for the years ahead.

The plan is guided by six transportation goals focusing on developing transportation connectivity; ensuring high quality safe roadways; engaging in the effort to develop the I-11 corridor; providing safe and convenient mobility choices; creating a “smart city;” and fully funding the operations, maintenance, renewal, and expansion of the City’s transportation system.

PROJECT NEON

The city of Las Vegas recently joined with the Nevada Department of Transportation, along with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), to celebrate the completion of the $1 billion, three-year Project Neon – the state of Nevada’s largest and most expensive public works job ever undertaken during its 155-year history.

Project Neon reduces travel delays and creates better mobility in downtown Las Vegas including  downtown and Las Vegas Medical District.

Project Neon enhanced nearly four miles of Interstate 15 between Sahara Avenue and the “Spaghetti Bowl” interchange in downtown Las Vegas. It’s currently the busiest stretch of highway in Nevada with 300,000 vehicles daily, or one-tenth of the state population, seeing 25,000 lane changes per hour. The improvements are timely with traffic through the corridor expected to double during the next two decades.

Project Neon reduces travel delays and creates better mobility in downtown Las Vegas including in the downtown and Las Vegas Medical District.

MAIN STREET IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

To help increase connectivity in downtown, the city recently completed a Main Street Improvement project between Las Vegas Boulevard and Bonneville Ave., enhancing pedestrian safety on both streets. The approximately $52 million Main Street Improvement Project brings wider sidewalks, bike lanes, additional landscaping and curb extensions to both Main and Commerce streets.

A new sculpture, Radial Symmetry (pictured here), was created as part of this project by Las Vegas resident Luis Varela-Rico. The two 16- foot-diameter stainless steel shapes that make up the sculpture were inspired by Southern Paiute basket weaving. The sculpture sits at the one-way couplet junction between Commerce and Main Streets.
