The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County and Sierra Nevada Construction invite the community to stop by Jelly Donut on their way to work on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 from 7 a.m. – 8 a.m. for free coffee and donuts. Jelly Donut is located at 1750 S. Virginia Street, near the intersection of Wells Avenue and S. Virginia Street.

The project team is providing the morning treats to the community in appreciation of their patience during construction and to remind drivers about the one-way traffic condition on Wells Avenue to access Jelly Donut and Mega Coin Laundry.

The project team will be in the parking lot giving away coffee and donuts to anyone who stops by between 7 a.m. – 8 a.m.

The RTC encourages everyone to continue to support Midtown businesses during construction and to post about their Midtown experience on social media using the hashtag #VirginiaStreetProject.

About the Virginia Street Bus RAPID Transit Extension project:

This more-than-$80-million investment in our community will create connectivity between Midtown Reno and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), and will support economic development, enhance safety, and improve livability in the corridor.

The project addresses critical transportation needs including improving transit operations by extending the Virginia Line RAPID transit service to UNR, correcting ADA sidewalk deficiencies, improving traffic operations and beautifying the corridor. Up to 300 trees will be added to the corridor as part of the project.

The project is funded with fuel tax revenue, federal and private funds.
