Washington, DC – Today the Department of Transportation (DOT) announced that it is awarding a Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability & Equity (RAISE) grant, made possible through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, in the amount of $23.9 million to the City of Las Vegas. This funding will support the Stewart Avenue Complete Streets Project by installing a protected two-way bicycle lane and developing prediction technologies for cyclists and pedestrians near intersections. It will also widen sidewalks and remove obstructions to meet ADA accessibility guidelines. Furthermore, the funding will be used to upgrade lighting, make bus stop improvements, and add landscaping. A corridor wide speed limit will also be implemented.
“The Stewart Avenue Complete Streets Project will facilitate mobility, make our streets safer, and promote environmental equity in this part of town,” said Rep. Titus.
“The City of Las Vegas is continually updating and improving its infrastructure, and in our downtown areas that means creating complete streets that make our roadways safer, beautiful and more friendly for businesses and neighborhoods,” said Carolyn G. Goodman, Mayor of Las Vegas. “I want to thank our delegation for working to secure funds to provide ongoing upgrades to our infrastructure.”
