“We want to know what is most important to Nevada’s transportation system users, whether it’s safety, less congestion, reduced travel times, capacity expansion, or maintenance and repair,” said NDOT Assistant Planning Director Sondra Rosenberg. “This helps us make performance based decisions on future transportation projects to ensure we can continue meeting the state’s needs and goals of the state as well as those of users.”
Nevada state and local governments closely coordinate and prioritize transportation improvements. The One Nevada Plan will further the collaborative planning by combining multiple statewide and regional transportation plans into one comprehensive and adaptable plan, providing enhanced project prioritization and transparency.
“Ultimately, the plan transforms statewide transportation planning into a one-stop shop. It creates robust prioritization for planned transportation projects and programs for the next 20-plus years,” said Rosenberg. “Transportation connects us all. And the One Nevada Plan empowers us to make more informed transportation decisions, keeping Nevada safe and connected.”
The first version of the plan will be completed in 2018, with updates in subsequent years. It’s an ever-evolving process allowing the adaptation of future technological advances. Future online surveys and statewide mobile workshops will be offered to gather additional input from the public and stakeholders.
