FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The Arizona Department of Transportation is hosting a public meeting in northern Arizona next Wednesday night on the Interstate 15 and Virgin River bridges feasibility study.

The purpose of the study is to evaluate potential improvements along the 29-mile segment of I-15 through Arizona from the Nevada to Utah state lines.

That includes the rehabilitation of eight bridges throughout the Virgin River Gorge. Operational and safety improvements to I-15 between Nevada and Utah also will be evaluated.

The State Transportation Board awarded an $11.6 million contract last month to start a repaving project this summer from the Virgin River to the Utah state line.

In addition, ADOT has budgeted nearly $15 million to repave another 13-mile portion of I-15 that extends to the Nevada state line in 2015.
