NDOT Launches I-15 Widening Project
The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) broke ground on an I-15 widening project to widen the freeway between Craig Road and the Speedway.
Anyone driving during EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) or NASCAR events knows how troublesome the traffic is during these events. With over 100,000 people in attendance at each of these events. That brings the one year cost to less than $150 per attendee.
Uber and Lyft both had specific staging pick up and drop off areas at EDC. In fact, Uber had a special bonus for rides picked up from the staging area.
The $34 million, eighteen month long project isn’t expected to be completed until 2018. This should be in time for EDC that year.
