It might seem like road construction is everywhere and never-ending. However, there are many strategies that may improve travel and your commute, including new bicycle infrastructure, transit circulators, upgraded transit service and high capacity transit currently under study by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada. Together with complete streets projects that add new bicycle lanes, wide sidewalks, trees and amenities these and other efforts can improve mobility and enhance safety.
In 2018, the city became a Silver Bicycle Friendly Community status by the League of American Bicyclists for its efforts to expand, enhance and improve the safety of the bicycle network. The city continues to increase the number of bike lanes and trails to more than 465 miles, up from 125 miles in 2006.
Finally, transportation technology has been rapidly changing for both freight and passengers; with the introduction of transportation network companies and projected advances in the automation of vehicles and trucking, the urban environment and land use may need to be restructured due to innovation in transportation and technology.
Our plan will address how multiple modes of transportation and other infrastructure and public services will be provided in the future. The plan can accommodate and provide for emerging trends and changes that occur during both short and long periods of time.
What are the best ways to move people around the city quickly and safely? How should the city ensure that it is not trapped in gridlock in the future? Please send us feedback and check back to this page throughout the plan development process.
