Good News, Bad News For Reno Freeway Drivers

By  | 

If you regularly drive through the Spaghetti Bowl area you probably feel like the road construction is never ending.
But the Department of Transportation says progress *is* being made.
In fact, three ramps are now open and we have one closure to tell you about.
One of the most ambitious changes - a new on-ramp to 395.
On the north end of Kietzke Lane, just north of the river.
There you can catch both north and southbound 395.
The East McCarran Boulevard on-ramp to Interstate 80 West is now open..
So is the Fourth Street on-ramp to Interstate 80 West.
One piece of bad news for drivers who take Pyramid Way.. the on-ramp to Interstate 80 Westbound is now closed and will remain closed for the next 9 months.
If you drive that way, you should use either the East McCarran.. or the Rock Boulevard on-ramps.
One more thing for drivers to remember.. the speed limits are slower through this construction zone..
The speed limit is 50 miles and hour along Interstate 80 and 55 miles an hour on 395..
