Virginia Street Project

RTC RELEASE: RTC to Close Part of Virginia Street
Monday and Tuesday Nights for Utility Work

UPDATE: Due to wintry weather, this Virginia Street nighttime closure has been extended an additional night. Virginia Street will be closed from Mt. Rose Street/Holcomb Avenue to Plumb Lane on January 7 and January 8 from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. both nights.

Southbound traffic will be detoured at Mt. Rose Street to Lakeside Drive. Northbound traffic on Virginia Street can detour to Wells Avenue or from Plumb Lane to Lakeside Drive or Plumas Street.

The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County and local construction firm Sierra Nevada Construction (SNC) are transforming Virginia Street with construction of the Virginia Street Bus RAPID Transit Extension Project in the Midtown Reno. 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.
