LATEST NEWS
Investigation of the existing conditions is ongoing.  The new traffic data collected is being used to verify the existing and future traffic demands along Lemmon Drive.  Engineers continue to review the current crash data to identify existing hot spots and trends for special design considerations.

The RTC is working closely with Washoe County and the City of Reno as the Swan Lake recovery plan continues, and long-term mitigation alternatives are prepared and vetted.  The RTC is streamlining the preliminary roadway design and collaborating with local agencies in the overall program to improve conditions around Swan Lake.
