Posted: Updated:

RTC OPEN HOUSE TO UPDATE COMMUNITY ON SOUTHEAST CONNECTOR PROJECT

What: The Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County (RTC) is hosting a Public Information Open House to share information on the current status of the SouthEast Connector (SEC) project and to solicit public input on a variety of proposed design elements.  

When: March 28, 2013, 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Project Presentation at 6 p.m.

Where: Best Western Airport Plaza Hotel, 1981 Terminal Way, Reno

 

Details: The project team will be on hand to meet with the public to discuss the project, potential design elements, and listen to ideas to help develop community-based decisions toward final design of the SEC. The public will have the opportunity to submit questions and comments during the meeting.

The SEC is an important and significant regional investment in the Truckee Meadows that addresses long-term transportation needs to improve safety and mobility of people, goods, and services in the Reno/Sparks area. Once complete, the new roadway will stretch 5.5 miles from the intersection of Greg St. and Sparks Blvd. to the intersection of Veterans Pkwy and South Meadows Pkwy. The project is being built in two phases. Phase 1 is constructing the roadway from Sparks Blvd. to just south of Clean Water Way including a bridge over the Truckee River. Design for the second phase of work is currently under development and will complete the roadway from south of Clean Water Way to the South Meadows Pkwy/Veterans Pkwy intersection. Construction of the second phase is anticipated to begin in spring 2014, pending completion of the final design and obtaining the required environmental permits. Total project investment is estimated at $230 - $250 million.
