Save the Ramp

Save the Ramp

Thank you visiting the Save the Ramp section of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority website. While the public comment portion of the campaign to Save the Ramp is over, we continue our efforts with local public officials and community leaders to save access to the airport. Please see the letter below from our President and CEO.

Dear Airport Customers and Supporters,

I want to personally thank you on behalf of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority for your support in our recent campaign to save the southbound I-580 direct access ramp to Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO). The public comment period for the Nevada Department of Transportation’s Spaghetti Bowl Project is now officially closed, but your thoughts and words were received in time to be part of the official record.

While we may not know until June whether saving the ramp is included as a preferred alternative in the NDOT federal environmental impact statement, the direct access ramp is vital to the safety and traffic flow into RNO. Your support of our airport and its access will now be combined with letters from private citizens, well-known community members and major corporate entities, as well as the voices of elected officials, who have all joined the fight to Save the Ramp. RNO was copied on approximately 250 letters and emails that were sent to NDOT asking them to reconsider their plan for the airport. We suspect many more letters and emails were sent to NDOT that RNO was not copied on.

If we learn of a change of plans from NDOT, we will reach out by email to keep you informed. Again, thank you for lending your voice to support our economic engine that serves more than 4.2 million passengers each year and generates $3.1 billion per year for the local economy.
