Las Vegas RTC Launches Project

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), Las Vegas, recently launched a $40.3 million project to improve the Flamingo Road corridor, which connects to 15 RTC routes: 11 residential, three express routes and the Deuce on the Las Vegas Strip that operates with double-decker buses. One route is dedicated to the corridor; it carries 12,000 riders daily.

Improvements planned for the 14-mile route include dedicated public transit/bicycle lanes, more than 100 new bus shelters, upgrades to traffic signals and enhanced median landscaping and pedestrian crossings. RTC will complete the renovation in four segments and plans to finish in fall 2016.

Noting that Flamingo Road connects existing and planned commercial and residential development directly to the heart of the resort corridor and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Clark County Commissioner and RTC Chairman Larry Brown said, “This project is vital to our ability to move people, goods and services efficiently east to west through this busy area.”

The project will cost $40.3 million, including $8 million in fuel revenue indexing funding, $18 million from Nevada DOT, $14.1 million from DOT and FTA and $200,000 in RTC funding.
