Green Light: Construction Begins On F-Street Tunnel

In 2008, the Nevada Department of Transportation and City of Las Vegas closed F Street at the I-15, blocking access to Symphony Park for residents of the Historic Westside. The neighborhood fought back against the closure, and the legislature passed a bill requiring the city to reopen the street. Now, almost five years after the street first closed, construction is set to begin. We'll talk to two activists about what this means, and how it will help an impoverished part of downtown Las Vegas.

Support comes from

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
