Transportation Chief – Sans Hoverboard – Urges Consensus On Traffic Plans

Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said he would have preferred getting around in a more modern mode of transportation when confronted with the annual traffic nightmare that accompanies CES. Asked whether he would have liked to have used light rail to get in and out of the Las Vegas Convention Center area when he appeared on a panel at CES on Thursday, Foxx quipped, “No, maybe a hoverboard.” Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority President and CEO Rossi Ralenkotter said this week was the perfect time for Foxx to be in Las Vegas, when more than 170,000 people are attending the city’s largest annual convention. Foxx, who as mayor of Charlotte, N.C., guided that city’s development of a light-rail system, met with Southern Nevada transportation leaders Friday on a wide range of mobility topics. www.reviewjournal.com
