RENO, Nev. -- Monday is New Year's Eve and many people across the state are planning special events to celebrate the arrival of 2013.
If you are going out to celebrate in Reno, remember, RTC wants to be your designated driver. They are offering free rides from 7pm to 2am. It's part of an effort to keep Nevada roadways safe and ensure no one drives drunk. RTC officials encourage everyone to support the Zero Fatalities Drive Safe Nevada initiative.
For those of you celebrating the New Years near Tahoe, be prepared for a big crowd.
About 60,000 people are expected in the area of Stateline.
US Highway 50 may be closed to vehicle traffic in the evening for public safety. Therefore, traffic will be divered around the Stateline casino area on to Upper and Lower Lake Parkway Drive.
Traffic in that area is going to be pretty heavy, so it may take about 15 minutes longer to get where you're going, and always be prepared for slick roads.
