The Regional Transportation Commission is scheduled to break ground on the first phase of the SouthEast Connector Project Friday morning.

RTC says the public is invited to attend the 10:30am ceremony in the parking lot directly across from the Alamo Travel Center located at 1950 E. Greg Street in Sparks.

RTC says the SouthEast Connector project addresses long-term transportation needs to improve the mobility of people, goods and services throughout Reno, Sparks and Washoe County.

Phase 1 of the project, which is construction of a new bridge over the Truckee River, is scheduled to begin next month. It will take approximately 20 months to build.

Phase 1 will provide the last 5.5 miles of roadway connectivity along the Veterans Parkway/Sparks Boulevard corridor.
