Public meeting June 17 on proposed designs for I-580 South Reno interchanges



NDOT NEWS — The public is invited to provide feedback on proposed roadside landscape and aesthetic themes for several Interstate 580 interchanges in south Reno during a June 17 Nevada Department of Transportation public information meeting.

Preliminary landscape and aesthetic designs for five I-580 interchanges will be presented: Neil Road, South Virginia Street/Patriot Boulevard, South Meadows Parkway, Damonte Ranch Parkway and the South Virginia Street interchange nearSummit Mall. All designs are themed around Truckee Meadows ranching history and follow NDOT’s U.S. 395 (I-580) Landscape and Aesthetics Corridor Plan. Funding is currently available to construct the improvements at the South Virginia Street interchange near the Summit Mall. Landscape and aesthetic features at the four other interchanges could be constructed in the future as funding becomes available.

Landscape and aesthetics are used to enhance and define roadway corridors, reflect the heritage and culture of communities and further an area’s tourism and economic development potential.

The public information meeting will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 17 in the Depaoli Middle School cafeteria located at 9300 Wilbur May Parkway in Reno, with an informational presentation beginning at 5:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend the open-format meeting at any time between 4 and 7 p.m. to discuss the proposed designs and provide comments. Comments can also be made before July 1 on-line at www.nevadadot.com, by e-mail at [email protected] or by mail at NDOT Landscape and Aesthetics, 1263 South Stewart Street, Carson City, NV., 89712.
