As part of the Sky Vista Widening & Rehabilitation Project, the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is putting a temporary, all-way stop at the intersection of Sky Vista Parkway and Trading Post Road. The placement of the stop signs is to allow people to safely enter North Valleys Regional Park. The main entrance to the park will remain closed while construction continues.
Drivers are encouraged to pay close attention to traffic changes at this intersection because this intersection had been a two-way stop prior to this change.
Traffic along Sky Vista Parkway has been shifted to the west side of the road between Silver Lake Drive and Vista Knoll Parkway as crews begin work widening the east side of Sky Vista.
Transit stops along the Sky Vista Parkway corridor will be uninterrupted although locations may shift.
About the Sky Vista Parkway Project:
The project limits are on Sky Vista Parkway from Silver Lake Road to just east of Vista Knoll Parkway. As part of the project, the RTC will widen the road from one lane in each direction to two lanes in each direction. There will also be improvements for other roadway users.
The RTC will be adding new street lighting for safety, along with brand new eight-foot-wide sidewalks, and five-foot-wide bike lanes on both sides of Sky Vista Parkway.
Construction on the project is anticipated to be complete in fall 2023, weather permitting. This project represents an approximate $18.3 million investment in our community.
