Reno City Council Approves Phase 2 of SouthEast Connector

Posted: Updated:

The Reno City Council has cleared the way for construction on phase 2 of the SouthEast Connector.

That section extends from Clean Water Way to Veterans and South Meadows Parkways.

On Wednesday night the council voted 4-3 to approve a special use permit for the project. They also gave the green light for crews to disturb a major drainage way among other factors that contribute to flood management.

Previously, the Upper Southeast Communities Coalition tried to stop Phase 1 of the project, but ended up dropping their lawsuit. However, they are still trying to stop Phase 2.

If all goes as planned, construction on Phase 2 could begin in February.
