BACKGROUND: 

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) has approved and budgeted funding for the Dynamic Rumble Strips project in RTC's Highway Improvement Acquisition Fund from Fuel Revenue Indexing for Fiscal Year 2022.  RTC intends to evaluate Dynamic Rumble Strips within jurisdictions of Clark County, City of Las Vegas, City of North Las Vegas, City of Henderson, City of Boulder City, and City of Mesquite (collectively "Member Entities").

The attached Interlocal Contract No. 3029 identifies RTC as the lead agency and responsible party for all costs associated with this project. This contract allocates funds for a partnership with University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) to evaluate the effectiveness of a Dynamic Rumble Strip (DRS) device at midblock crosswalks.  The project team, comprised of staff from RTC, UNLV, and Member Entities, will identify a midblock crosswalk to use as a test location, and said location will be evaluated by UNLV prior to DRS installation to establish baseline data based on criteria developed by the project team.  Data will be collected over a 30-day period after the DRS system is installed.  RTC and Member Entities will receive a written report from UNLV following evaluation of the results.  The collected data will be used to determine if the DRS system is a viable option to enhance pedestrian safety at uncontrolled sidewalks.  The contract's time of performance is effective to June 30, 2027, unless time extensions are granted.

RTC agrees to conform to the current RTC policies and procedures as they pertain to this project.  RTC approved the interlocal contract at its meeting on April 14, 2022.

Each of the Member Entities is scheduled to approve the interlocal contract at their respective Board/Council meetings.

The District Attorney's Office has reviewed and approved the interlocal contract as to form.
