We Saved the Ramp

We Saved the Ramp

Dear Airport Customers and Supporters,

You saved the ramp! Last month we sent a thank you message to all in the community who sent letters to the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) in support of saving the southbound I-580 direct access ramp to Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO). I want to update you on the status and am pleased to let you know the southbound ramp will remain in place.

Our Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board of Trustees unanimously passed a resolution supporting NDOT’s inclusion of the preferred alternative option to retain the I-580 southbound direct connector ramp to RNO. Federal approval of NDOT’s preferred alternative presented in a combined Final Environmental Impact Statement/Record of Decision is expected this summer and will incorporate the airport sponsored option of retaining the southbound I‐580 direct connector ramp.

Public input played a major role in retaining the ramp that provides vital access to RNO. Eighty‐five percent of the public comment received on the Spaghetti Bowl Project sought the inclusion of the Interstate 580 southbound freeway access ramp to RNO. We truly appreciate our community, tenants and public officials making their voices heard and for NDOT working with us in a spirit of partnership to save the ramp.

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.
