LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Reducing travel delays, improving safety and improving air quality are among the priorities of the Henderson Interchange project, and the state wants the public to contribute.
The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) also has “regional mobility” on its priority list.
The interchange, where the 215 Beltway meets Interstate 11 / Interstate 515, is the subject of a public information meeting Thursday at the Center Ice Room in Lifeguard Arena at 222 S. Water Street. The meeting is scheduled from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The in-person meeting will have screens and project staff on-site to answer questions.
NDOT is preparing a study “to assess and document the potential environmental impacts of the proposed project,” according to a press release announcing the meeting.
A feasibility study was completed in 2020. Decisions made from this environmental study will guide final design and eventually construction, NDOT officials said.
Residents can still participate in the 24/7 virtual public meeting until August 5 at www.dot.nv.gov/hendersoninterchange, by providing feedback via the website, in person, in writing or by mail. email to [email protected] government until August 5.
