The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is planning to begin concrete maintenance on Wednesday, May 19, on North Virginia Street near the roundabout located by the University of Nevada, Reno. The work, which will take place on North Virginia Street between 15th and 16th Streets, is anticipated to be complete by Wednesday, May 26.

During the maintenance work, northbound traffic on Virginia Street will remain open. Southbound traffic on Virginia Street will be detoured at Sierra Street to 15th Street, back to Virginia Street. Access to the University’s West Stadium Parking Garage may be closed intermittently.

Transit users for the RAPID Virginia Line and Route 7 are encouraged to check for transit route updates while the maintenance is taking place.

Drivers, bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit users are encouraged to use extra caution near construction zones for everyone’s safety.
