LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) – The Nevada Dept of Transportation is well aware that the I-15/Tropicana rebuilding project is a really big deal.
NDOT’s Tony Illia told me in a zoom conversation that whoever gets the contract will have financial incentives, which he explained in real simple terms: “If the contractor has 48 hours to finish and they’re able to finish in, say, 24 hours, then they can earn a certain amount of money. Now, conversely, of course, should they run late, there’s also penalties attached to that. We’re talking literally a-quarter-of-a-billion-dollar undertaking. Tropicana has changed dramatically over the years with the addition of the T-Mobile arena and Allegiant stadium. It’s due for a makeover now more than ever.”
We’re still about a year away from the start of this proposed two year project – and there’s so much more to tell you about it, so stay tuned. To visit NDOT’s website on the project click here.
