Work begins on park and ride facility funded by federal stimulus dollars

A groundbreaking ceremony today marked the beginning of the first Clark County transportation project funded by federal stimulus money.

Of the project’s $11 million price tag, nearly $9 million comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The Centennial Hills Park and Ride facility will be a hub for northwest valley residents to take express bus service to downtown, the Strip and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The project is expected to produce 68 jobs, an official said. The facility should be ready for use by January.
