WHAT: The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is holding a public informational meeting to solicit input on the Interstate 15/U.S. Highway 93 Garnet Interchange and U.S. Highway 93 capacity improvements. Proposed improvements include reconstructing the Garnet Interchange (built in 1963), widening U.S. Highway 93 for 5 miles from a two-lane to a four-lane divided highway, while also creating a two-lane frontage road parallel to U.S. Highway 93. A design-built contract for these improvements was initiated on August 15, 2017, with substantial completion expected at the end of 2018.
WHY: The proposed improvements will increase safety and improve traffic operations for current and future traffic needs. These highways carry an increasing level of freight traffic to and from Northern Nevada. The project additionally provide access to adjacent industrial and manufacturing enterprises, such as the Apex Industrial Park
