This project consists of the replacement of the two Arlington Avenue Bridges at the Truckee River in downtown Reno. Additionally the project will look to perpetuate and where possible enhance community access to the Truckee River and Wingfield Park as well as improve the hydraulic capacity of the Truckee River during flood events. There will be some aesthetic enhancements incorporated into the bridge design. The bridges, roadway, and Wingfield Park are owned by the City of Reno.
