In a joint announcement with Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak Sunday morning, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said they will be bringing “immediate relief” to the traffic congestion on Interstate 15 at the Nevada-California border.
Newsom said they will take the shoulder about five miles south of the border and make it a third lane during peak hours. The project will cost about $12 million, but Newsom says existing money will be used to complete the project. He says it will be done by Summer 2022, but a more permanent solution is still needed.
