(Las Vegas, NV)  —  The Las Vegas city council has approved nearly nine-million-dollars in bonds for a controversial road project.

The money will be used to reopen F Street, which was shut down as part of the I-15 widening project.  Supporters say the closure has hindered access for residents of the African-American community near downtown Vegas.

New city council member Bob Beers joined fellow councilman Bob Coffin in voting against the bonds.

    from what i understand, there is a access to downtown on two other streets, less then a block away,why should we spend several million’s of dollards so a few famillies can have a straght shot to downtown?
