LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - If you'd like to get information or ask questions about the design of the Interstate 15/215 interchange, your chance is coming up.

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), in cooperation with the City of North Las Vegas, is holding a public information meeting to solicit input on the final design of the I-15/215 Northern Beltway interchange.

Proposed improvements call for new flyover ramps between I-15 and the 215 Beltway interchange, added I-15 southbound ramps, and reconstruction of I-15 northbound ramps for the Tropical Parkway interchange as well as local street upgrades, plus landscaping and aesthetics. The design is expected a finish in the second quarter of 2019 with an anticipated groundbreaking in the fourth quarter of 2019. Project completion is scheduled for 2022.
