WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) applauded news that the city of Las Vegas and the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada will receive more than $3.5 million to improve local roadways and help prevent accidents, injuries, and traffic fatalities. This funding comes from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which Senator Rosen helped write and pass.
“Making sure that Nevadans have safe, accessible, and reliable roadways is crucial for our communities and local economy,” said Senator Rosen. “This funding, which I helped secure in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will help Southern Nevada improve our roadways and make them safer. This funding will also help bring more visitors to our state, which will strengthen our tourism economy.”
Senator Rosen has been working tirelessly to ensure Nevada gets its fair share of federal infrastructure money. As one of the authors of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, she made sure Nevada had a seat at the table and got federal funding for infrastructure projects. As of November, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has provided Nevada with more than $1.2 billion for Nevada roads, bridges, roadway safety, and other major transportation projects.
