View Executive Summary

The City of North Las Vegas (City) required a study for the purposes of updating the Master Plan of Streets and Highways (MPSH). This project assisted with this effort by establishing street typologies to describe streets across the City based on right of way width and context and developing typical cross sections for residential and downtown streets. The typical street sections incorporated complete streets principles and are designed to be comfortable and safe for people of all ages and ability levels.
