The SouthEast Connector (SEC) is a regional roadway that runs from the intersection of Sparks Boulevard and Greg Street in the north, to South Meadows Parkway and Veterans Parkway in the south. It is a six-lane, roadway built up on embankment with a separated multi-use path. The SEC is a vital link that connects the south part of the Truckee Meadows with the east part of the Truckee Meadows. The only other continuous link that serves this purpose is I-580 to I-80, which is reaching critical capacity. All other regional roads in the southeast part of the Truckee Meadows are also reaching critical capacity. The SEC provides much needed relief to the entire transportation network.


Maintenance work, including temporary irrigation and weed abatement within the wetland areas is on-going and will continue until approximately the end of 2021.
