The RTC, in cooperation with the City of Reno, a major stakeholder, and other local agencies, is conducting a feasibility and conceptual alternatives analysis to determine options for the rehabilitation or replacement of the two Arlington Avenue Bridges at the Truckee River. The bridges, roadway and Wingfield Park, which they access, are owned by the City of Reno.
This river crossing has served the city for nearly a century. The park, the Truckee and the surrounding area have evolved, and the bridges have been widened, repaired, and modified multiple times. The bridges show signs of wear resulting from these various modifications, as well as their age, and repeated exposure to flood events.
While considering current flood protection requirements, this study will also determine the environmental, community and economic constraints of rehabilitating and/or reconstructing the bridges. The overall goal, at this stage, is to identify a bridge type and aesthetic package, as well as funding options and environmental limitations, to carry forward into design.
