RENO, NV - KOLO 8 News Now viewers asked us about the closure of the Neil Road onramp to northbound 395. This onramp has been closed since Memorial Day. The closure, a part of the Meadowood Mall Way Interchange construction project.
A Nevada Department of Transportation spokesman tells KOLO 8 that the Neil Road onramp will be closed for two more months. The hope is to have it open in August. This particular onramp will become a long frontage road, which includes a stop light, and connects that part of south Reno to Kietzke Lane right at PF Changs.
While the Neil Road/NB 395 onramp is closed, NDOT recommends drivers detour by taking the southbound 395 onramp at Neil, then exit at South Virginia Street and u-turn back onto US 395.
The Meadowood Mall Way Interchange project completion is delayed. While NDOT hoped to have it finished by August, it is now looking more like completion will be in October.
