The Signal Timing 6 project is the start of the new three-year signal timing cycle. Signals completed under signal timing 5 will be re-evaluated, and re-timed to accommodate the changes in traffic demands. The goal of the project is to continue to re-timing of a 1/3 of the signals each year, and to expand signal timing plans to include weekends, holidays and special event plans if possible. The schedule of work for a typical corridor consists of the following:

• Collect traffic & signal data
• Input timings into model and evaluate existing signal timing
• Develop new timing and implement in the field
• Fine-tune timing, and conducting before-after studies.

The following is a tentative list for timing to be implemented in 2020:

• Left over signals still needs to be completed from Signal Timing 5:
• Moana Ln (4 Signals) – Kietzke Ln to Neil Rd
• Plumb Ln (4 Signals) – Kietzke Ln to Terminal
• Isolated Intersections (111 signals left) – Completed

Corridors in bold are expected to be retimed in 2020:
Vista Blvd (9 Signals) – EB I-80 to S Los Altos Blvd
• Wells Ave (8 Signals) – Ryland Ave to E 9th St
• Sparks Blvd (9 Signals) – EB I-80 to N Los Altos Blvd
• N McCarran Blvd (7 Signals) – Sutro St to Sullivan Ln
• Clear Acre Ave (4 Signals) – N McCarran Blvd to Scottsdale Rd
• Kietzke Ln (8 Signals) – 2nd St to Peckham Ln
• Mill St (4 Signals) – Kietzke Ln to Terminal Way
• W McCarran Blvd (8 Signals) – Plumb Ln to W 7th St
• Mae Anne Ave (3 Signals) – W. McCarran Blvd to Sierra Highlands
• S McCarran Blvd (23 Signals) – (Greensboro to Mill St) Kietzke Ln (S Virginia St to Sierra Rose), Virginia St (Kietzke Ln to S McCarran Blvd), and Peckham Ln & Longley Ln intersection.
• Pyramid Way (13 Signals) – Nugget Ave to Lazy 5, including McCarran Blvd @ Rock & 4th.
• Downtown Reno (45 Signals)
• Damonte Ranch Pkwy (7 Signals) – Double R Blvd to Zolezzi Ln

• Spanish Springs Isolation Signals (13 Signals)
• Sun Valley Blvd (6 Signals) – El Rancho/Dandini to 7th Ave.
• Prater Way (8 Signals) – Galletti Way to 12th St
• Sparks Isolated Intersections (27 Signals) – Various Locations
• Damonte/Steamboat (4 Signals) – From Damonte/Promenade to Veterans/Steamboat
• Keystone/California Area (3 Signals)
• E McCarran Blvd (13 Signals) – Glendale Ave to Probasco Wy
• Sutro St (12 Signals) – Ryland Ave to E 9th St, including: Kuenzli/Locust, 2nd/Manuel, Ryland/Locust, Ryland/Mill
• S Virginia St (11 Signals) –Meadowood Mall Wy to SB I-580 off-ramp (by In-n-Out)
• Neil Rd Interchange and Meadowood Mall Wy Interchange

*Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, there has been a drastic reduction in traffic flows around the region. All traffic signal timing implementation is on indefinite hold until all traffic flow returns to normal.*
