I580 Road Plan Impacts RNO

A properly improved I580 Spaghetti Bowl benefits everyone. However, the current plan negatively affects the airport, which impacts the tourism and business communities. NDOT wants to remove the “flyover ramp” entrance and exit that provides fast, efficient unfettered freeway access from the airport.

RNO serves more than 4 million passengers per year. The Master Plan projects 6.5 million by 2036. With traffic increasing, now is not the time to inhibit freeway access for RNO.

If NDOT can include the I580 southbound entrance ramp to RNO in its Preferred Alternative in the Environmental Impact Statement, RNO will quickly become a vocal champion of the entire plan. But we need your help to accomplish this.
