The project includes widening Lemmon Drive from US 395 to Military Road from four lanes to six lanes (Segment #01) and widening Lemmon Drive from Fleetwood Drive to Chickadee Drive from two lanes to four lanes (Segment #02).
Preliminary design of Segment 1 (US 395 to Military Road) is underway. The RTC completed geotechnical investigation and laboratory testing to develop geotechnical design recommendations. Coordination continues with utility companies to identify conflicts and facilitate any utility relocations.
In March, the Project’s Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) started the qualitative evaluation of alternatives at a conceptual level. Each alternative is screened based on the ability to meet the project’s purpose, need, and goals. This summer the range of alternatives will be narrowed down to three and presented to the public.
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.
