LAS VEGAS (KLAS)— On Tuesday at Allegiant Stadium, Governor Steve Sisolak and U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, along with the Nevada Department of Transportation, will officially launch the I-15 and Tropicana Interchange Project.

The press conference featured several members and representatives of Nevada’s congressional delegation including Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Senator Jacky Rosen, and Congresswoman Dina Titus. All speakers echoed the notion that the project will bring thousands of jobs and improve safety and transportation times for Nevadans and visitors.

The project, which will take roughly three years, and be divided into four sections, will replace the nearly 60-year-old Tropicana bridge, as well as accommodate capacity for future growth and access.

Phase one of the project will include raising and widening the bridge, adding a fourth lane, sidewalk expansion, and the removal of a signal light.
