The project will increase safety, add roadway capacity, and improve bicycle and pedestrian facilities by widening Sparks Boulevard between Greg Street and Baring Boulevard. Please visit to learn more about the project.

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.

Design of the southern segment of the project, between Greg Street and I-80, is advancing as an early action project and is currently projected to go into construction in 2022.  Design of this phase is at approximately 50%.

Preliminary engineering and preliminary environmental work is advancing for the segment of the project between I-80 and Baring Boulevard.
