The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County plans to intermittently close lanes on Sparks Boulevard between Greg Street and Baring Boulevard at nighttime starting on Monday, August 3 for approximately two months. Drivers can anticipate minor lane and shoulder closures between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Construction crews will be doing exploratory work under the roadway in preparation for potential future roadway-widening construction that will improve safety and mobility on Sparks Boulevard. During the exploratory work, the roadway will remain open to two-way traffic.

This exploratory work under the roadway is part of the RTC’s planned Sparks Boulevard Project and crews will be performing on-site soil sampling, pavement sampling and surveying topography.

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. Construction dates have not yet been identified.
