Design Firm: Partnership between RTC, City of Reno, City of Sparks, and the UNR Center for Advanced Transportation Education and Research

Construction Contractor: To be determined

The traffic Signal Timing project is a collaborative partnership between the RTC, Cities of Reno and Sparks, and the UNR Center for Advanced Transportation Education and Research. The goal of the project is to continue the re-timing of 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 and 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

This project will provide signal re-timing engineering services for a 3-year cycle beginning in July, 2023 and concluding in June 2026.

Final approval of the interlocal cooperative agreements will be considered by the RTC Board, Reno City Council, and Sparks City Council in June. Upon approval the project implementation will begin in July.
