Cortez Masto Applauds $300,000 DOT Grant to RTC of Southern Nevada for Transit-Oriented Development

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) applauded the Department of Transportation (DOT) for awarding the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Southern Nevada a $300,000 grant to develop a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) plan for an 8.7-mile fixed guideway project proposed to run along Maryland Parkway into downtown Las Vegas.

“The Maryland Parkway corridor is a hub for growing businesses, medical facilities and is home to UNLV’s burgeoning campus. I’m pleased that the DOT has chosen to award the RTC of Southern Nevada grant funding to improve the transit system along this corridor and I applaud them for their efforts to provide Nevadans with efficient transportation solutions, while further connecting the City of Las Vegas.”
