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.
