Nevada Road Projects Could be Delayed, Cost Jobs

Posted: Updated:
Major road projects in Nevada will likely be delayed unless Congress acts by fall to address a highway funding shortfall.
 
A report presented Monday to the state Transportation Board of Directors says delays could cost the state 6,000 jobs.
 
 Gov. Brian Sandoval who is chairman of the boards tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/1jktVJ0 ) that postponement will affect families and the state's transportation infrastructure.
 
Project Neon, a major Interstate 15 widening project in Las Vegas and the Boulder City Bypass are not expected to be affected if Congress fails to approve a new transportation funding bill.
 
But many other projects scheduled to see construction beginning in 2015 or 2016 would be postponed a year or two, and others would be taken off the list completely until funding is available.
