The Regional Transportation Commission is looking for recommendations about how to improve traffic and transit service along Maryland Parkway.

The RTC is holding two open houses this week to allow people to voice their opinions about the improvements along Maryland Parkway from McCarran International Airport to downtown Las Vegas.

Feedback from the open houses will be used in the final recommendations for the transportation study.

The open houses will be:

  • 4 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Boulevard Center Court, 3528 South Maryland Pkwy.
  • 4 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Bonneville Transit Center, 101 East Bonneville Ave.

City Looking for Ways to be More Walkable

City Looking for Ways to be More Walkable

The city of Las Vegas is holding a series of community meetings to talk about its efforts to make a more walkable city.

The city is developing a Ward 3 Walkable Community Plan that will focus on making the area around Eastern and Sunrise avenues an easier neighborhood to walk to school, to stores and to community amenities.

City officials want to reduce the number of miles people have to travel in cars, offer more alternative transportation options and increase social interaction.

To accomplish that goal, the city is asking for feedback from residents to find out what they want done. People can do that by logging on to yourvoicevegas.com or by attending the community meetings planned for the next few weeks.

Police Put Pedestrians, Drivers on Notice Ahead of Students Return

Police Put Pedestrians, Drivers on Notice Ahead of Students Return

More than 300,000 students are returning to school in Clark County next week. 

Police from all over the Las Vegas valley are going to back to school too. They are going to be at school zones making sure students get to class safely.

Police from Henderson, North Las Vegas, Metro and the Clark County School District Police gathered at Valley High School Thursday to put drivers and pedestrians on notice.

People caught speeding, texting or driving while distracted should expect a ticket. They are fed up with people not getting the message.

"Unfortunately, we have seen way too many fatalities on our valley, 35 so far this year, 29 of those in Metro's jurisdiction. Really want to impress how important it is on those coming weeks, rest of the year, bring those numbers down," Todd Raybuck with Metro's Traffic Division said.

New Ramp Meters Set to Start Operating Thursday

New Ramp Meters Set to Start Operating Thursday

New ramp meters are set to start operating Thursday at several on ramps along two major freeways in southern Nevada.

Most of the ramp meters will only be active when there is heavy traffic; however, one ramp meter will be on regularly. The ramp meter at northbound I-515, commonly known as U.S. 95, and Charleston Boulevard will be on during prime commuting hours, which is 6 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m.

The other meters will be at north and southbound ramps along I-15 and I-515, mostly in the eastern and southwestern part of the Las Vegas valley.

The ramp meters have been used at busy ramps along I-15 and U.S. 95 for several years.

When the meters are on, drivers must obey the lights. One car per light, per lane is allowed to enter the ramp to merge into freeway traffic.
