It’s time to DROP it like it's TROP! The Nevada Department of Transportation’s (NDOT) “Dropicana” project is reconstructing the I-15 Tropicana Interchange in efforts to add capacity and improve accessibility to the Las Vegas Strip. The RTC urges transit passengers and motorists to prepare for detours and delays during this 18-month long project.
Construction will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 17 resulting in a full closure of Tropicana Avenue from January 22-30 and a full closure of I-15 from Jan. 27-30. How may this affect you?
Due to increased traffic, transit riders should prepare for detours and possible delays in the following routes:
CX – Centennial Express
