A New Monorail Era For Las Vegas

Southern Nevada's Regional Transportation Commission receives environmental approval for a four-mile $650M monorail extension.

"As concrete columns dot Paradise Road and beyond, ushering in a new monorail era east of Las Vegas Boulevard, the new four-mile $650M project is on schedule and under budget -- two elements not commonly found in public projects. But as the first phase inches towards its late-January early-February 2004 start date, the second phase extension is barreling toward a start in middle of that same year."
