The Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County (RTC) plans to close eastbound traffic on 4th Street in Reno from Quincy Avenue to Evans Avenue from August 13 to August 31 for paving. Westbound traffic will not be affected by the lane closure. Eastbound traffic can detour on Evans Avenue to Sutro Avenue via 2nd Street or 6th Street.

In addition to the lane closures, the RTC also plans to close the 4th Street/Evans Avenue intersection from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. on August 15 and again on August 31 for paving. Traffic will be detoured to Lake Street.

The work is part of the 4th Street/Prater Way Bus RAPID Transit project.

Businesses along this corridor remain open and accessible during construction.

Construction operations are weather permitting. For the latest updates, text 4PRATER to 797979, or visit to sign up for email notifications.

The work is part of an overall $58-million investment in the community to better connect Downtown Reno and Downtown Sparks and provide access to jobs and education opportunities. The 4th Street/Prater Way Bus RAPID Transit Project involves widening sidewalks, adding bike lanes, adding new landscaping and moving utilities underground. The final component of the project will be a new RAPID bus line, called the Lincoln Line, debuting in late 2018. The new RAPID service celebrates the famous Lincoln Highway. Completion of construction is anticipated in fall of 2018.
