The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is set to start a roadway rehabilitation project on Lakeside Drive on Monday, July 20, 2020. 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 and make ADA improvements.

During construction, Lakeside Drive will be open to two-way traffic. The RTC reminds the community to use extra caution in and around construction zones for the safety of drivers, pedestrians, and construction crews.

The project is anticipated to take about three months to complete. The project represents a $2.2-million investment in our community.
