The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County will complete a roadway rehabilitation project on Lakeside Drive between McCarran Boulevard and Evans Creek Drive on Wednesday, October 14, 2020.

As part of the project, the RTC reconstructed the roadway, replaced ADA-deficient sidewalks and pedestrian ramps, added bike lanes on both sides of the roadway, and made ADA improvements to driveways.

“This project will help create significant bicycle connectivity in our region, as well as a safer, smoother road for drivers,” said RTC Board Chair Bob Lucey. “Projects like this one are important to achieving the RTC’s goals of keeping pavement in good condition and improving multimodal access throughout our community.”

The project’s ADA improvements, especially to sidewalks, will improve access and mobility for everyone. All road users, including pedestrians, will benefit from the improvements the RTC has made on Lakeside Drive.

The project began on July 20, 2020, and was completed on schedule and within budget. The project represents a $2.2-million investment in our community, funded with local fuel tax revenue.
