document construction iconPHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), in association with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is proposing a bridge rehabilitation project on Interstate 15 (I-15). ADOT has received a $21.6 million grant from FHWA to improve Virgin River Bridge No. 6 at milepost 15.58 on this heavily traveled corridor that connects Nevada, Arizona and Utah. 

ADOT and FHWA are holding a public hearing on Wednesday, April 10, which will provide information on the potential environmental impacts of the proposed project and give you an opportunity to comment on the Draft Environmental Assessment (EA). Project representatives will be available to discuss the recommended proposed project and potential impacts, and a court reporter will record the proceedings and public comments.
