The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is working with the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) to permanently close one of three lanes on Matley Lane between Villanova Drive and Plumb Lane.

RTC has had two recent car crashes into their facility and wants to close the lane for safety.

It will be the southbound lane closest to the RTC Facility on Matley Lane and the closure will begin on Wednesday, November 21. 

Drivers exiting I-580 southbound using the Villanova Drive/Plumb Lane exit should expect a new traffic pattern. Intersections along the corridor will not be affected.

On Saturday, November 10, two separate car crashes happened, and both vehicles entered the RTC's maintenance facility. No RTC staff or the passengers of the cars were injured, but RTC is taking action to improve safety and prevent potential future crashes from impacting RTC employees and their facility.
