The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County and the City of Reno have installed a speed feedback sign on Lakeside Drive, south of Berrum Lane.

Washoe County Commissioner Alexis Hill is using her Fiscal Year 2024 discretionary Street and Highway funds to pay for the equipment needed to operate the digital sign. Speed feedback signs provide drivers with their vehicle’s speed in relationship with the posted speed limit.

Hill selected this location to address speeding on Lakeside Dr. and its close proximity to Anderson Elementary School amid concerns from the community. The infrastructure is intended to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians, including children as they walk to and from school.

Two other speed feedback signs have recently been installed on the northbound and southbound lanes at the South Virginia Street and Mary Street roundabout in Midtown. Hill also provided the funding for these signs.
