March 21 Meeting Update

RTC, SNC and the City of Reno met with business owners and stakeholders on Thursday, March 21 at The Saint.  The team provided project information including construction timelines and operations and answered questions. View the presentation here.

The next phase of construction is anticipated to begin June 17, 2019. From June to October, the team will reconstruct nine side streets: Stewart Street, Moran Street, Cheney Street, St. Lawrence Avenue, East Taylor Street, Tahoe Street, Martin Street, Caliente Street and Arroyo Street.  When construction is active, side streets will be closed.  Consecutive streets will not be closed at the same time. Traffic on Virginia Street from Plumb Lane to Mt. Rose Street will be one-way southbound.  Two-way traffic will be maintained on Virginia Street from Mt. Rose Street north.  View the project schedule here.
