• An Inside Look at the Freeway Service Patrol, April 2018

    352 views 5 months ago
    The Nevada Department of Transportation provides the Freeway Service Patrol (FSP) in the Las Vegas and Reno/Sparks areas and also provides Incident Response Vehicles (IRV) in the Las Vegas area. The purpose of these programs is to improve highway safety on the more heavily traveled sections of our urban freeways by reducing the time required to remove incidents (objects) that can disrupt traffic flows and cause traffic congestion during peak travel periods. Whether it's a stalled vehicle, debris on the road, or a minor accident, the objective of the FSP and IRV is to remove distractions from the road as quickly as possible to avoid impacting passing drivers. FSP and IRV technicians are certified in community first aid and Automotive Service Excellence to ensure they are prepared to quickly remove minor incidents from the roadway. The FSP also assists other public safety organizations including law enforcement, fire, paramedics and towing and recovery professionals to rapidly and safely address more complex traffic incidents.

    The Nevada Department of Highways was formed on March 23, 1917 with a mission to surface the rutted dirt paths that served as the road network of the time. Historical Nevada transportation photos, videos and decade-by-decade history of the progression of state highways are now available at nevadadot.com/100 and by following the department on Facebook and Twitter. An historical e-book will also be published on-line this week.
    Nevada residents are also invited to provide memories or reflections of early Nevada transportation to potentially be included on the NDOT website and social media posts by visiting nevadadot.com/100 or contacting NDOT at (775) 888-7000.
