The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is continuing construction on the Oddie Wells Project and is advising the community of upcoming traffic control changes due to ongoing construction activity and paving operations for Phase 1.

  • Nov. 10 – Nov. 23: The south side of the Oddie Blvd./Rock Blvd. intersection will be closed to all traffic.
  • Nov. 10 – Nov. 23: The south side of the Oddie Blvd./12th St. intersection will be closed to all traffic.
  • Nov. 28 – Dec. 2: The south sides of both the Oddie Blvd/Rock Blvd. and the Oddie Blvd./12th St. intersections will be closed to all traffic.

Traffic will be detoured to Greenbrae Drive. Oddie Blvd. will remain open to traffic in both directions.

The intersections will be reopened over the long Thanksgiving weekend, from Nov. 24-27.

Residences and businesses within the closure will remain accessible.

The RTC encourages the community to support the businesses along this corridor, which remain open and accessible during construction.

The RTC reminds everyone to use extra caution in and around the construction zone for everyone’s safety.

About the Oddie Wells Project:

The Oddie Wells Project will increase safety, connectivity, and mobility options along this heavily traveled corridor. The project plans include new lighting, landscaping, ADA improvements, pedestrian ramps, and bicycle facilities, providing safer traffic operations.

The RTC plans to construct a raised cycle track on both sides of the roadway from Sutro Street in Reno to Pyramid Way in Sparks. On Wells Avenue from Sutro Street to I-80, plans include a multiuse pathway on one side of the road and sidewalks on the other side. The new multiuse pathway will connect to the existing multiuse pathway along I-80 by UNR Farms.

Corridor improvements will support economic investment and redevelopment while enhancing the quality of life for area residents by improving accessibility and safety. Construction will be completed in four phases and is anticipated to be complete by fall of 2024, weather permitting.
