The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is providing an opportunity for residents of the Reno/Sparks urban area to review and comment on the Adoption of the Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2023-2027 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP).
A copy of the draft will be available for viewing and comment at rtcwashoe.com for a 21-day period starting on Friday, July 21, 2023 and ending on Thursday, August 10, 2023.
The FFY 2023-2027 RTIP is a five-year program of major state highway, regional road, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian projects for Washoe County. The RTIP represents a prioritized program directed at meeting Washoe County’s growing transportation needs while improving the region’s air quality, transportation efficiency, safety and mobility. The RTIP serves as a useful tool in planning and programming transportation system improvements.
The FFY 2023-2027 RTIP will add new projects and incorporate updates to current projects in the existing RTIP. Changes to existing projects will reflect necessary updates to project phasing, scope, cost, funding sources, and/or timing.
As the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the RTC is required by federal regulation to adopt a regional plan at least every four years. Completing an adoption ahead of the federally required four-year timeline helps to streamline the overall adoption process and creates efficiencies in making project edits.
Interested parties can send comments on the proposed amendment during the 21-day public review period to the following address by mail, telephone, facsimile, or electronically:
