The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is planning a roadway rehabilitation project on Lakeside Drive and is seeking community input before construction begins in the summer of 2020. The community is invited to join the RTC on Tuesday, January 14 from 5-7 p.m. at the Bartley Ranch Historic Huffaker School, located at 6000 Bartley Ranch Road in Reno for an open house to learn more about the project.

The project includes the rehabilitation of Lakeside Drive between McCarran Boulevard and Evans Creek Drive. The pavement in this section of Lakeside Drive has deteriorated and needs to be replaced. As part of the project, some sidewalks and curbs will also be replaced. The RTC will also add new bike lanes on both sides of the roadway.

The project is anticipated to begin in June 2020 and take about three months to complete. The project represents an estimated $2.5-million investment in our community.

The Bartley Ranch Historic Huffaker School is accessible to individuals with disabilities.  Requests for auxiliary aids to assist individuals with disabilities should be made with as much advance notice as possible. For those requiring hearing or speech assistance, contact Relay Nevada at 1.800.326.6868 (TTY, VCO or HCO). Requests for supporting documents and all other requests should be directed to RTC Metropolitan Planning at 775-348-0480. Supporting documents may also be found on the RTC website.
