RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) will continue working on underground utilities on Sullivan Lane Wednesday, November 8 as part of the 4th Street/Prater Way Bus RAPID Transit (BRT) Project. Due to construction, Sullivan Lane from F Street to Prater Way will be down to two lanes, with one lane open in each direction during construction. The closure is not expected to significantly impact traffic, according to RTC.
Drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians are urged to use extra caution in construction areas. RTC says homes and businesses in that area are open and accessible during construction.
Construction operations are weather-permitting. For the latest updates, text 4PRATER to 797979, or visit 4thprater.com to sign up for email notifications.
The work is part of an overall $58 million investment in the community to better connect downtown Reno and downtown Sparks and provide access to jobs and education opportunities. The 4th Street/Prater Way Bus RAPID Transit project involves widening sidewalks, adding bike lanes, adding new landscaping and moving utilities underground. The final component of the project will be a new RAPID bus line, called the LINCOLN LINE, debuting in 2019. The new line celebrates the famous Lincoln Highway. Completion of construction is anticipated in summer of 2018.
