RTC's West Plumb Lane Enhancement Project Done, Celebration Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
From the Regional Transportation Commission:

The Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County proudly announces the completion of the West Plumb Lane Neighborhood Enhancement Project. On Tuesday, April 29th, local dignitaries and RTC officials will celebrate the improvements with residents of the Plumb Lane neighborhood. The $6.5 million road investment included reconstruction of Plumb Lane from Ferris Lane to South McCarran Blvd; installation of a new sewer main, storm drain improvements, curb and gutter and a multi-use path. Electronic speed limit monitors and landscape replacement and aesthetic treatments were also part of the improvements.

“These neighborhood enhancements provide accessible paths to walk and bicycle and improve safety for everyone,” said Lee Gibson, RTC Executive Director. Area residents and commuters gave RTC input for the project design at several community meetings prior to the start of construction in July 2013. “The project represents the collaborative spirit between the RTC and the community to improve the road, which is the hallmark for the work we do on behalf of the citizens of Washoe County,” Gibson stated. Upgrades to the TMWA infrastructure were also installed prior to and parallel with the road work.

The official celebration for the completion of the project will be held at Rivermount Park located between Benjamin Franklin and Daniel Webster Drives off of Plumb Lane. The community is invited to attend the public event for an old-fashioned neighborhood get-together at 11 am. Funding for the project was made possible using local fuel tax dollars.
