The One NV Transportation Plan is a new addition to Nevada’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). State Departments of Transportation are required by the federal government to prepare LRTPs to ensure the continued movement of people and goods over a 20 year horizon. The One NV Transportation Plan seeks to not only meet these federal requirements but to better align Nevada’s various transportation plans and processes and create a framework to make more informed transportation decisions.The plan process includes the development of specific goals and objectives. In general, the One NV Transportation Plan aims to:
- Identify, track and report transportation performance to decision makers and the public
- Make more informed and transparent project decisions across NDOT’s entire program
- Improve project prioritization and project certainty
- Create a lasting collaborative process to ensure the plan continuously moves Nevada towards achieving statewide goals while also adapting to new developments
Why is this Important?
Transportation connects us all. It is critical to connecting both our daily lives and our state’s economy. Strategically planning for Nevada’s transportation future allows us to grow and thrive, attract new businesses and industries, and access the state’s natural beauty in a way that maximizes the public’s investment.
The One Nevada Transportation Plan is envisioned to be a plan that aligns the efforts of our many transportation partners across the state. This goal allows transportation to be planned from the view of “One Nevada.” NDOT is working with numerous partners including:
- Land Management Agencies
- Transportation Providers
- Tribal Governments
- Local/Regional Governments
- Federal Government
- Neighboring States
