Local political, transportation, and economic leaders will join TRIP on Tuesday to highlight the report’s findings and discuss possible solutions.

The report, Nevada Transportation by the Numbers: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe, Smooth and Efficient Mobility, examines road and bridge conditions, congestion, economic development, highway safety, and transportation funding in Nevada. The report contains regional data for the Las Vegas and Reno-Tahoe-Carson City urban areas, as well as statewide information.
