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 3 of the Oddie Wells project.

Beginning Monday, June 26, the north side of Oddie between U.S. 395 and Sutro Street will be closed and traffic will shift to the south side. Two-way traffic will operate on the south side of Oddie from June 26 until approximately the end of October 2023.

Residences and businesses along Oddie Boulevard will remain accessible, and the RTC encourages the community to continue to support the businesses along this corridor. 

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 multi-use pathway on one side of the road and sidewalks on the other side. The new multi-use pathway will connect to the existing multi-use 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.
