This month, during National Pedestrian Safety Month, Clark County Commissioner and RTC Board Chairman Justin Jones activated newly installed traffic lights in the southwest part of the valley. Joined by Southern Hills Hospital staff, Commissioner Jones celebrated the new signal at Sunset Road and Quarterhorse Lane, just west of I-215 in the Southwest.

The traffic signals enable safer travel for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians in the area. The project included:

  • traffic signal poles 
  • induction loop detectors
  • flashing yellow arrows
  • closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras
  • intelligent transportation system (ITS) infrastructure
  • pavement widening and rehabilitation where needed

This $700,000 project is one of many safety improvement projects around the valley funded by Fuel Revenue Indexing. Since 2014, Fuel Revenue Indexing has partially or fully funded 652 roadway projects totaling more than $2.5 billion, with 418 of those completed. These projects have created more than 16,000 jobs for our community.

Watch this short video to hear from Commissioner Jones about the importance of this project and how this safety improvement benefits all road users.
