4th Street|Prater Way Bus RAPID Transit Project Weekly Update: March 3, 2017

Dear Stakeholder:

Below please find the project update for the week of February 27 and anticipated traffic control for the week of March 6, 2017.

Phase 1 Traffic Control in Place

The project team switched traffic to the Phase 1 configuration this week. Drivers are shifted to the north side of the roadway while demolition and roadway reconstruction are in progress on the south side.  Drivers can expect minor delays throughout the project corridor.  Traffic engineers are evaluating signal timing and will adjust as necessary.

While crews work on demolition on the east side of the project near Prater Way and Pyramid Way, another team will be working on water line installation and improvements on the west side of the project near 4th Street and Galletti Way.

“We anticipate working six days a week from 7 am to 7 pm whenever possible with crews at both ends of the project,” said Warren Call, RTC Project Manager. “We heard how important it is to everyone the project moves as quickly as possible.”

Traffic Control Week of March 6, 2017

Weather dependent, traffic control may include sidewalk closures, lane closures and minor detours.

Traffic is in the Phase 1 configuration. The south side of the roadway is closed for demolition and roadway reconstruction. Traffic will be shifted to the north side of the roadway. One lane in each direction will be maintained. Business and residential access will be maintained. Drivers can expect minor delays.

The City of Reno sewer rehabilitation project is underway. East 4th Street from 6th Street to Galletti Way will have various lane restrictions and the eastbound traffic lanes will be closed to through traffic. Weather dependent, the project could be completed the week of March 6, 2017. Please call Reno Direct at 334-INFO with questions or comments.
