The RTC is very excited to be constructing new, wider sidewalks, creating new smoother roadway and moving utilities underground. These improvements will make the area accessible to everyone under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
This is part of a larger project to better connect Downtown Reno and Downtown Sparks with new bus service, bike lanes and pedestrian amenities. We remind everyone to plan for delays. Construction will last through early 2018 and the new bus line, which will be called the LINCOLN LINE in honor of the Lincoln Highway, will debut shortly after.
Additionally, there are some lane closures right now on Victorian Avenue between Kietzke and Prater that will be lasting a couple more months. A short detour is available.
