LATEST NEWS
The RTC in cooperation with the City of Sparks, Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is initiating an Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate and document the proposed Project’s potential impacts. A live, online public information meeting will be held on September 16, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. in order to provide information about the Project and receive comments from about potential environmental impacts.
