Southern Nevada Strong (SNS) regional plan

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is the administrator of the Southern Nevada Strong (SNS) regional plan. SNS is the region’s first federally recognized plan that serves as a blueprint for planning, building and investing in complete communities that will provide access to quality education, housing options, employment opportunities and viable transportation choices.

Community Mobility Study

The city of Las Vegas is undertaking a comprehensive planning effort to develop a 20-year vision for transportation in our city, known as the Mobility Master Plan. This plan will strive to create a balanced, multimodal transportation system; one which gives people choices about how to get to their destinations. As a result, multimodal opportunities such as light rail, aerial trams, street cars, protected bike lanes, or alternate modes that encourage mobility choices other than just automobiles will be a cornerstone of this plan. As the city continues to grow and the transportation system evolves, it will also be advantageous to see the use of new technologies to assist with proactively managing vehicle traffic.

PROJECT NEON

Project NEON is the largest transportation project in Nevada state history. Nearly two decades in the making, the $1.5 billion project will widen a 3.7-mile stretch of Interstate-15 from the ‘Spaghetti Bowl’ interchange to Sahara Avenue. It’s currently the busiest stretch of highway in Nevada with 300,000 vehicles daily or one-tenth of the state population; there are also 25,000 lane changes an hour and 1,000 crashes annually. The project will add more general travel lanes as well as direct carpool access ramps at Wall Street as well as reconstruct the Charleston Boulevard interchange with a Grand Central Parkway connector over Charleston. Other improvements include a direct southbound U.S. 95 to southbound I-15 carpool flyover bridge, along with aesthetic and landscape upgrades, intelligent signs and improved drainage. Project NEON will create 4,000 construction jobs while reducing smog and travel delays by 28 percent for a $110 million annual savings in improved productivity. It will additionally improve air quality and safety by reducing merge and weave traffic. Construction will begin in the first quarter of 2016 with anticipated completion by mid-2019.

MAIN STREET IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

The $13.9 million Main Street Improvement Project stretches along Main Street from Bonneville Avenue to north of the I-515 overpass. The project is designed to improve traffic flow within the corridor and make the area safer for bicyclists and pedestrians by adding shared bike/vehicle lanes and widening sidewalks. A portion of the project is being funded by Fuel Revenue Indexing, which generates revenue every time a motorist fuels their vehicle.
