LAS VEGAS, NV — Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak will be joined by U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) at Allegiant Stadium on Tuesday morning for the launch of the Interstate 15/Tropicana Interchange Construction Project.
New resorts, professional sports and sold-out concerts have drawn as many as 300,000 visitors to the area on peak weekends, according to a news release.
The I-15/Tropicana Interchange serves as a gateway to the Las Vegas Strip, which continues to grow as the Entertainment and Sports Capital of the World.
“This project will improve public safety by replacing the nearly 60-year-old Tropicana bridge, as well as accommodate capacity for future growth and access,” the news release stated.
The I-15/Tropicana Interchange Project will be funded with help from the President’s Infrastructure Law. Construction is set to begin this year and finish in 2024. It’s estimated to support 4,664 jobs.
Sisolak and Buttigieg will be joined by NDOT Director Kristina Swallow, as well as several members and representatives of Nevada’s congressional delegation.
