The Signal Timing 5 project is the latest in a series of projects to help local agencies retime traffic signals in the region. The goal of the project is to time a 1/3 of the signals each year in three year cycle. For 2018, the project is in its second year.  It is planned that 10 corridors, roughly 120-126 intersections will have new timing implemented. In the process, reevaluation of the clearance intervals and pedestrian crossing times will be done at each intersection to comply with current standards. The project is funded through the Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality (CMAQ) program. 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 new timing to be implemented in 2018:

  •  Pyramid Wy (13 Signals) – Nugget Ave to Farr Ln, including McCarran Blvd at Rock and 4th
  •  Downtown Reno (45 Signals)
  •  Damonte Ranch Pkwy (7 Signals) – Zolezzi Ln to Double R, including Double R at Double Diamond
  •  S. Meadows Pkwy (5 Signals) – S. Virginia St to Double R Blvd
  •  E. McCarran Blvd (14 Signals) – Greg St to Probasco Wy, including Greg St at Standford and Spice Island
  •  S. Virginia St (19 Signals) – Mt Rose St to SB I-580 off-ramp (by In-n-Out)
  •  Keystone Ave (6 Signals) – 7th St to 1st St
  •  Rock Blvd (9 Signals) – Greg St to Prater Wy
  •  Moana Ln (4 Signals) – Kietzke Ln to Neil Rd
  •  Plumb Ln (4 Signals) – Kietzke Ln to Terminal Wy


Rock Blvd (9 Signals) – Greg St to Prater Way – New timing under fine tune.

North Downtown Area Signals (8 Signals) – Maple St, 8th St., 9th St – New Timing to be implemented Early December.

Sun Valley Blvd (6 Signals) – El Rancho/Dandini to 7th St. – Data collection underway.
