RTC Adopts $11 Billion Road Improvement Plan

July 14, 2006 04:01 PM PDT

In the next 25 years about $11 billion will be spent on improving transportation in Las Vegas. The Regional Transportation Commission adopted the plan Thursday.

The plan includes widening freeways and streets and extending bicycle lanes in Southern Nevada.

Part of the plan includes widening I-15 up to 8 lanes both north and south of the city and up to 14 lanes past the Las Vegas Strip by 2030.

It will also widen the Summerlin Parkway to 8 lanes.

Several major thoroughfares would convert to superarterials like Desert Inn.

Money will also be spent on air quality improvements.

The plan only gives $960 million to transit improvements.
