Midtown business Pizzava is holding an appreciation lunch for the RTC and Sierra Nevada Construction team working on the Virginia Street Project.

The lunch will be held on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Pizzava, located at 1043 S. Virginia Street in Midtown Reno. Pizzava will be providing free pizza to the entire construction team during the event.

“We appreciate all of the hard work that the Virginia Street Project team is doing to transform this corridor into an even better place for Midtown businesses and our customers,” said Pizzava owner Sabri Arslankara. “These crews have been working on the project day and night, no matter how cold it is outside, and this is our way of thanking them.”

“It’s inspiring to see a local business giving back to the men and women who are working to transform Midtown,” said RTC Executive Director Lee Gibson.

About the Virginia Street Bus RAPID Transit Extension project:

This more-than-$80-million investment in our community will create connectivity between Midtown Reno and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), and will support economic development, enhance safety, and improve livability in the corridor.

The project addresses critical transportation needs including improving transit operations by extending the Virginia Line RAPID transit service to UNR, correcting ADA sidewalk deficiencies, improving traffic operations and beautifying the corridor. Up to 300 trees will be added to the corridor as part of the project.

The project is funded with fuel tax revenue, federal and private funds.
