The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County will begin construction to rehabilitate Newport Lane from Link Lane to McDaniel Street in Reno on August 30. The project will include a complete roadway reconstruction, new sidewalk connections, ADA pedestrian ramps, driveway and drainage improvements.

To safely complete construction activities, drivers can anticipate some lane closures during construction. Residential access will be maintained at all times, except during pre-scheduled driveway closure events for driveway improvements. Residents will receive at least 18-24 hours notice. Traffic control is subject to change, so please check for updates.

Construction on the project is anticipated to take approximately eight weeks to complete. This project represents a $2 million investment in our community funded with fuel tax funds.
