VIRGINIA ST BUS RAPID TRANSIT EXTENSION PROJECT

This project addresses critical transportation needs including improving transit connectivity, efficiency, and timeliness through connecting RAPID to the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), improving safety for all modes, correcting ADA sidewalk deficiencies, and improving traffic operations. No sidewalks exist in many sections of the corridor, and in other areas sidewalks are in poor condition, which forms a barrier to transit stop access. The corridor contains numerous vacant or underutilized buildings and lots. Improved transit service and walkability will encourage implementation of TOD and redevelopment district goals.

PYRAMID & MCCARRAN INTERSECTION PROJECT

For general project details, click on the Project Title or Read More.

Granite Construction is taking full advantage of the warm, dry weather and has been advancing the project in several areas. Phase 3 paving work (the middle of Pyramid) was recently completed, moving all legs of the project into phase 4 (north side of McCarran and west side of Pyramid). The Queen/Farr Lane intersection has been completed, allowing the final work on the west side of Pyramid Way. The landscaping continues to take shape with more tree planting and the installation rock mulch. RTC has been meeting with and coordinating public outreach activities in support of local businesses.

2017 ANNUAL PAVEMENT PRESERVATION PROJECT

The program for the upcoming construction season includes corrective maintenance (asphalt concrete patching) of regional roads that require short-term maintenance measures to improve ride quality and durability until complete reconstruction can occur (approximately 3-5 years). This work is necessary because of the severe winter that has resulted in accelerated deterioration of those regional roads near the end of their life cycle. The roads to be included in the project are located throughout the City of Reno, City of Sparks and Washoe County.

TRAFFIC SIGNAL TIMING 5 PROJECT

The Signal Timing 5 project is the latest in a series of projects to help local agencies retime traffic signals in the region. The goal of the project is to time a 1/3 of the signals each year in three year cycle. For 2017, it is planned that 11 corridors, roughly 87 – 92 intersections will have new timing implemented. In the process, reevaluation of the clearance intervals and pedestrian crossing times will be done at each intersection to make sure it is up to current standards. The project is funded through the Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality (CMAQ) program.
