Public hearing scheduled Wednesday, Nov. 29, on Interstate 15 Virgin River Bridge No. 1 rehabilitation

Draft Environmental Assessment is available for review and comment

The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration have scheduled a public hearing on Wednesday, Nov. 29, for the public to learn about and comments on the draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the I-15 Virgin River Bridge No. 1 bridge rehabilitation project, near Littlefield and Beaver Dam in Mohave County.
Public hearing is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 29, at Beaver Dam Lodge, 452 Old Highway 9 in Littlefield. A formal presentation is scheduled from 6 to 6:30 p.m.

Three issues related to the bridge have been identified: structural deficiencies, the ability to accommodate high volumes of truck traffic and the need to support interstate and regional travel. A preferred design solution to replace the bridge and widen the roadway shoulders in construction phases is proposed.

Representatives from ADOT and the project team will be at the public hearing to answer questions about the project. The public hearing is also an opportunity for members of the public to provide formal verbal testimony on the draft EA to the study team. A court reporter will be available to record individual verbal comments as well.

A range of alternatives were evaluated and the analysis is documented in the draft EA, which is available for review through Dec. 14, 2017. The draft EA is available to review online at and at the following locations during business hours:
Mesquite Library, 121 W. First North St., Mesquite, Nevada 89027
Washington County Library-St. George Branch, 88 W. 100 South St., St. George, Utah 84770
Beaver Dam Lodge, 452 Old Highway 91 North, Littlefield, Arizona 86432

There are several opportunities for the public to provide comments on the draft EA during the comment period. All comment methods are considered equal.
