Las Vegas Medical District plans for upgrades

Las Vegas Medical District will implement several improvements for its location, the Las Vegas Sun reported Aug. 25. 

In addition to the construction of University of Nevada, Las Vegas' new $150 million medical school, the district plans to spend $130 million on infrastructure repairs including road reconstruction, widening sidewalks, new traffic signals, new lighting and improving bus pullouts. 

There are also plans to construct a new complex to attract healthcare workers to the area that will feature 500 housing units, office and retail spaces. The district also seeks to build a 440-room hotel. 

A $7.4 million shuttle system will be installed as well to transport people throughout the district. 

Las Vegas-based University Medical Center, part of the district, will also be replacing the exterior on all of its buildings for $50 million.
