The fiscally constrained, four-year plan outlines federal and state-funded transportation projects, as well as regionally significant transportation improvements funded through local and/or state dollars in accordance with the Federal Aid Highway Act and Federal Transit Act.  These projects improve the capacity of Nevada’s transportation system, such as increasing lanes, constructing new roads and intersection improvements along with certain road maintenance projects.  It also includes transit, rail, pedestrian walkway and bicycle facility projects.

Using the One Nevada Plan performance-based decision-making process, NDOT develops future transportation projects to best meet the needs and goals of the state, and those using the transportation system. NDOT works closely with metropolitan planning organizations, counties, cities, tribes and other local agencies to develop the comprehensive statewide planning document to provide a transportation system that keeps Nevada safe and connected.
