Reno, Nevada (October 13, 2017) –The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) plans to temporarily close the Prater Way/Rock Boulevard intersection for a marathon paving weekend from Friday, October 20 at 7 p.m. until Monday, October 23 at 6 a.m. The work is part of the 4th Street/Prater Way Bus RAPID Transit (BRT) project.
Drivers and bicyclists are urged to plan an alternate route or follow detour signs. Businesses in that area are open and accessible during construction.
Construction operations are weather dependent. For the latest updates, text 4PRATER to 797979, or visit 4thPrater.com 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. 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 2019. The new line celebrates the famous Lincoln Highway. Completion of construction is anticipated in summer of 2018.
