The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) plans to temporarily close the 4th Street/Sutro Street intersection for paving starting on Monday, July 16 and reopening by approximately Saturday, July 28. During the same time period, 4th Street will also be closed to through traffic from Quincy Street to Montello Street.
Signed detours will be in place for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians. Traffic going eastbound and westbound will detour to 6th Street. Traffic going northbound and southbound will detour to Wells Avenue. The work is part of the 4th Street/Prater Way Bus RAPID Transit project.
Businesses along this corridor remain open and accessible during construction.
Construction operations are weather permitting. For the latest updates, text 4PRATER to 797979, or visit 4thPrater.com to sign up for email notifications.
The work is part of an overall $58-million investment in the community to better connect Downtown Reno and Downtown Sparks and provide access to jobs and education opportunities. The 4th Street/Prater Way Bus RAPID Transit Project involves widening sidewalks, adding bike lanes, adding new landscaping and moving utilities underground. The final component of the project will be a new RAPID bus line, called the Lincoln Line, debuting in late 2018. The new RAPID service celebrates the famous Lincoln Highway. Completion of construction is anticipated in fall of 2018.
