The Nevada Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, is holding a public information meeting about the planned Interstate 15/Tropicana Avenue interchange reconstruction.
The project also includes proposed High Occupancy Vehicle ramps for Harmon and Hacienda avenues.
The meeting, held from 4 to 7 p.m. Jan. 30 at the Clark County Development Services Center, 4701 W. Russell Road, will be conducted open house style with displays, maps and project staff. A presentation will be made at 5:30 p.m., followed by a brief question and answer period.
The Tropicana overpass bridge currently lacks sufficient clearance over Interstate 15; there is also not enough width for future I-15 expansions. The proposed improvements are expected to alleviate congestion, improve mobility and enhance efficiency.
Comments may be submitted for the public record in writing at the meeting or verbally to a court reporter who will be present at the meeting. Written or emailed comments will be accepted through 5 p.m. Feb. 16. Please direct comments to Jeff Lerud, project manager, 123 E. Washington Avenue, Las Vegas, NV 89101; phone: 702-671-8865 or email: JLerud@dot.nv.gov
