The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County, in partnership with the City of Sparks and the Nevada Department of Transportation, invites the community to attend a live, online public meeting about the Sparks Boulevard Project on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. at SparksBlvdProject.com.

The RTC is seeking community feedback on the proposed project. As funding is identified, the RTC plans to widen Sparks Boulevard between Greg Street and Baring Boulevard. The potential project also includes bicycle and pedestrian improvements.

During the meeting, participants will receive an overview of the project and its purpose, be given an update on the project’s status and schedule, and understand the role of public participation.

The RTC is asking for public input in further identifying the purpose and goals for the project. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), RTC is initiating an Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate and document the proposed Project’s potential environmental impacts.

The live meeting will be a one-hour event featuring an interactive question-and-answer session where members of the project team will be responding to typed comments. For the purposes of this meeting, participants will be muted, but will be able to type and submit their questions throughout the meeting.

The meeting will be conducted in English with live captions in English and Spanish.

Following the live event, a virtual meeting room will be posted to the project website at SparksBlvdProject.com featuring materials presented during the live event. The virtual meeting room will be available for public review and comment through October 16, 2020. Comments must be received by this date to be included in the official record of the meeting.

Construction dates have not yet been identified.
