RTC relaunches ’Seeing Orange’ campaign to help commuters plan their travel

Tools and resources provide traffic navigation help for motorists and transit riders

LAS VEGAS – As the region’s traffic manager, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is monitoring and responding to the large number of special events, roadway construction projects, and private development growth throughout our valley. To inform travelers, the RTC announces the relaunch of its Seeing Orange campaign with an enhanced website that includes information and tools for both transit riders and motorists to help them better plan their commutes.

“We take our role as our community’s traffic manager seriously,” said RTC Chief Executive Officer, M.J. Maynard. “While the RTC does not ultimately control the timing of special events and roadway construction projects, we coordinate with the region’s municipalities and event organizers to update traffic timing plans, provide transit detours, and notify riders and motorists of impacts. We are excited to share the new and improved Seeing Orange website to help commuters better plan their travel.”  

The new site offers direct links to real-time traffic alerts, transit rider alerts, detours, and special event information, along with updates on upcoming construction and longer-term project information.

In addition to SeeingOrangeNV.com, the RTC provides the following navigation and route planning tools:
