South Meadows Multimodal Transportation Study Public Meeting

Damonte Ranch High School

The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County invites the community to give input on the South Meadows Multimodal Transportation Study at a community meeting on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, at Damonte Ranch High School, located at 10500 Rio Wrangler Parkway in Reno. Doors open at 5 p.m. and a presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m. The RTC also plans to livestream the presentation on its Facebook page.

The RTC is beginning a study that will identify potential improvements in the South Meadows area for everyone, including drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users. Future improvements could include reducing traffic congestion, enhancing multimodal travel options, and school-zone safety improvements.

The study will consider different factors, including analyzing traffic patterns and transit use, land-use data and zoning information and evaluating pedestrian and bicycle movements. The RTC will also consider crashes that have happened in the area to improve safety for everyone. Making our community roadways safer for pedestrians makes them safer for all road users.

When the RTC is done with the study, the results will help prioritize improvements.

Oddie/Wells Project Design Community Meeting

Washoe County Senior Center, 1155 E. 9th Street in Reno

The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County invites the community to learn more about the Oddie Boulevard and Wells Avenue design project at a community meeting on Thursday, March 28 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Washoe County Senior Center, located at 1155 E. 9th Street in Reno. A formal presentation will begin at 6 p.m. For those unable to attend, the RTC plans to livestream the presentation on its Facebook page.

Preliminary design plans have been submitted to the City of Reno and the City of Sparks for comments and the RTC is also seeking community input.

The RTC-sponsored, multimodal improvement project will revitalize the 3.2-mile corridor by creating a more livable, safer and vibrant community on Wells Avenue, beginning at 9th Street in Reno and extending to Oddie Boulevard at Pyramid Highway in Sparks. Improvements will include ADA-compliant sidewalks, pedestrian ramps, landscaping, bike facilities, and safer traffic operations to increase mobility and connectivity in the Truckee Meadows. Future transit services may also be considered.

Corridor improvements will support economic investment and redevelopment while enhancing the quality of life for area residents by improving accessibility and safety.

Final project design is anticipated in early 2020. After the design is complete, the project will progress to the construction phase. The earliest construction could take place would be in 2020.
The total project cost, including construction, design, permitting and construction management, is approximately $30 million. At this time, the project is primarily funded with local fuel tax revenue.
