The National Environmental Policy Act is a federal law enacted by Congress in 1969. It is the umbrella under which different types of environmental studies are conducted to determine the impacts a proposed project may have on the human-made environment, the natural environment, and prehistoric and historic cultural resources. The NEPA process relates to many other federal, state and local environmental laws intended to protect, preserve or improve natural and human environments.  

I-515/Charleston Boulevard Interchange Environmental Assessment (EA)

NDOT, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) which examines the potential socioeconomic and environmental impacts of improvements being considered for the proposed I-515/Charleston Boulevard Interchange project. The EA describes why the project is needed, alternatives considered (including No-Build Alternative), existing environment that could be affected by the project, potential impacts from the alternatives, and proposed mitigation measures.

The EA can be accessed via the PDF files below. Hard copies are available for review at:

  • East Las Vegas Library (2851 E. Bonanza Rd. Las Vegas);

  • Sunrise Library (5400 E. Harris Ave. Las Vegas);

Mule Deer Migration

This video highlights the wildlife crossing structures that cross over and under US 93 and I-80 to reduce deer-vehicle collisions.  During spring and fall migrations, thousands of mule deer move over the landscape to reach their summer and winter grounds. These movements put them in the path of traveling motorists creating a safety risk to both humans and wildlife.  The crossing structures have practically eliminated deer-vehicle collisions in these areas and provided safe passages for wildlife to navigate Nevada roads.
