Transit System Planning and Design
Las Vegas Monorail Extension to McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas, NV
CA Group is assisting the Las Vegas Monorail Company with planning, permitting, alternatives analysis and preferred alternative design to provide a monorail connection to McCarran International Airport. The monorail extension would connect to the existing LV Monorail at the MGM Hotel; extend easterly across Koval Lane, across Tropicana Avenue and onto McCarran International Airport. The monorail guideway will be depressed into a tunnel section as it crosses Runways 19L&R, it would then head south to a new station at Terminal 1 and then east to the new Terminal 3 station. The total length of the extension would be approximately 3 miles.
