Description

As a part of the congestion management plan around the Las Vegas casino area, the Regional Transportation Commission evaluated alternative technologies, and decided upon the monorail system to carry passengers along the strip. This is part of the Resort Corridor Transportation Master Plan. This six (6) mile long system is integrated with the Limited Liability Corporation’s (LLC) monorail system for which construction is in progress. The six (6) mile system contains thirteen (13) stations and a new maintenance yard and shop located midway in an urban setting.  Therefore, it was critical to design an aesthetically pleasing facility which would fit within the context of the urban fabric of Las Vegas City.
