LEDC favors interstate transporation solutions

“The Laughlin Economic Development Corporation does indeed support solutions for additional interstate transportation needs,” its Board of Directors concluded in a statement after meeting Dec. 17.
“The LEDC believes such projects, whether they are roads, highways, bridges, airline services, bus routes, railroads, or ferries, must be on an as-needed basis, with maximum benefit to all major segments of the involved communities.
“The current proposed crossing is not the right location to obtain those maximum benefits, and after all these years, its final costs are still unknown. Simply squeezing a project down to less than desirable levels of service still leaves a problem. It may be a way out, but it is not the right answer to truly meet our needs.
“Our previous statements always noted ‘at this time...with the (available) bridge funding,’ and with lack of written agreements to construct it, that it should not be at the proposed location,” the statement said.
