On April 27th and 28th the design
team, UNLV, and NDOT participated in a workshop to describe the
opportunities and constraints presented with the I-80 Rural Corridor.
A summary of the findings and options
are included in the "Opportunities & Constraints
Analysis" (see files below). The report consolidates
the data that has been gathered and analyzed on several summary
maps. The analysis identifies specific locations of physical
opportunities and where new design standards may be applied.
The analysis does not in and of itself create the landscape and
aesthetics corridor plan. However, it establishes the framework
for future recommendations.
The next phases of the corridor planning process include obtaining
public and stakeholder input into potential opportunities beyond
those included in this summary report. Additional information
concerning potential partnerships, funding resources, and community
interest projects will be sought through the public participation
process. Input received will be synthesized into preliminary
design concepts and further developed into the Landscape and
Aesthetics Corridor Plan.
