Sparks Blvd Closing

Construction will begin at 7 a.m., Wednesday, May 10, 2006, to widen Sparks Boulevard from Henry Orr Parkway (formerly First Tee Parkway) to Pyramid Highway.

As part of the project, northbound lanes of Sparks Boulevard will be closed from Henry Orr Parkway to Pyramid Highway on Wednesday, May 10th and Thursday, May 11th. During that time, northbound drivers can take Los Altos Parkway as a detour.

Beginning Friday, May 12th, northbound and southbound traffic lanes will be open; however, drivers can expect 15 minute delays through the construction zone, according to City of Sparks spokesperson Karen Todd.

The Sparks Boulevard widening project is expected to be complete by mid-August.
