RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - SouthEast Connector construction crews found human remains Wednesday in the Veterans Parkway area. There is no word how many sets of remains were found.

The Washoe County Sheriff's Office said the remains are historic, so they will not be investigating, saying appropriate organizations have been contacted to investigate, including three Native American tribes.

The Regional Transportation Commission project manager says this will not impact the project schedule of the connector.
