The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for transportation planning and funding in Clark County, is seeking public comments on the 2017-2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) Amendment. The amendment updates the 2017-2020 High Priority Investment Program (HPIP) by adding two federal fiscal years (FFY) and aligning it with the 2019-2022 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The amendment also adds the Maryland Parkway project and funds to the Club Ride Program project listed below. RTC has determined that the addition of these projects to the RTP do not adversely impact air quality conformity.
- Add Maryland Parkway project: The 8.7-mile project will implement the newly approved bus-rapid transit system on Maryland Parkway between Russell Road and Carson Avenue, with an extension to the Las Vegas Medical District and University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Medical Campus.
- Add Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program funds in FFY 2021 and 2022 to the RTC Club Ride Program project.
The RTP document and results of the air quality conformity results will be available at the RTC Administration Building or on the RTC website during the public comment period beginning Monday, April 29 and ending Sunday, May 19, 2019.
You can join the RTC at an upcoming public meeting to learn more about the amendment and provide your feedback.
