Upcoming LVMD infrastructure projects.
Upcoming LVMD infrastructure 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.
