PROJECTS INTERACTIVE MAPS
The future of Northern Nevada depends on the transportation network of roads, streets, highways and public transportation. The RTC Planning Department anticipates, forecasts and plans for the transportation needs of today, tomorrow and the future. Through efforts of the Planning Department, the community's visions for all modes of transportation is put into plans.
Planning is responsible for development and preparation of the region's long-range Regional Transportation Plan and the short-range transportation plan (Regional Transportation Improvement Program).

The RTC has been designated by the state legislature as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) as required by federal law for transportation in Washoe County. This vital and important role in our community helps Northern Nevada compete at the federal level for public dollars for transportation in our community. RTC works with local cities and regional government planning agencies to anticipate and plan for the future of our Truckee Meadows home.
The Planning Department also conducts corridor studies, dissemination of regional transportation information, air quality analysis and development review services in addition to other tasks.
The Regional Transportation Commission is evaluating potential transportation improvements along Mill Street between Lake Street and Terminal Way, and Terminal Way between Plumb Lane and Mill Street. The purpose of this study is to identify and evaluate potential multi-modal transportation improvements that coordinate effectively with adjacent planned and existing land use, and future redevelopment. The study will identify existing and future conditions along the corridor, including traffic analysis, safety issues, right-of-way, land use, transit, bicycles, pedestrians, and access control. Public participation and community outreach will be an important component when developing alternatives for future improvements to this corridor.
4th Street and Prater Way Study Project Specific Website (click here)
Work is currently underway on the 30% design and NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) permitting for a portion of the corridor from Evans Avenue to Pyramid Way. The design team is busily collecting additional information and data in the corridor, including soils and environmental analysis, as well as right-of-way and topographic mapping. This information will greatly inform engineers and designers as they continue to refine the roadway alignment design for the various proposed street cross sections within this segment of the corridor.For more information on this project, click here for the 4th Street and Prater Way Fact Sheet.
Oddie Boulevard | Wells Avenue Corridor Study Project Specific Website (click here)
The Oddie Boulevard/Wells Avenue Corridor Study was approved by the RTC Board on February 15, 2013. The purpose of the study was to identify multimodal transportation (bicycle, pedestrian, transit and auto) issues and solutions in the corridor, which can help to facilitate a move livable, safer, and more vibrant community in the Truckee Meadows. The study recommendations were developed in coordination with the redevelopment efforts currently underway in the City of Sparks. The final plan, materials from the workshops and open houses, and the existing conditions report are available for viewing on the project website (see link above).
