Reno Link Road Reduced to 3 Possible Routes

RENO, Nev. (AP) - Regional transportation planners have selected three possible routes for a new link road from southeast Reno to Sparks.

Each route for the southeast connector road is within a 1,500-foot-wide corridor extending from the base of Geiger Grade, through the Rosewood Lake area and ending at Sparks Boulevard.

The Regional Transportation Commission is expected to choose a final route later this year.

Officials say the options will be evaluated on distance from homes and flood control considerations.

Once a route is finalized, officials say it will be at least five years before construction begins.
