Nevada's first (modern) toll road could be on its way

It was noted last year that toll roads were not allowed in Nevada, hindering development of a toll funded Boulder City Bypass. Now I can report the Boulder City Bypass is to proceed thanks to the Nevada Legislature passing a bill allowing it according to the Las Vegas Sun. Nevada’s first modern toll road appears to be on its way.   Hopefully it will be fully electronic free flow as well.

It will be US$400 million (map here), but is incapable of being fully toll financed.  This will become an issue once Phase 1 (which is not needing toll financing) is completed.
