Dear Stakeholder:
Below please find the project update for the week of March 27 and anticipated traffic control for the week of April 3, 2017.

New Traffic Pattern

Flashing signal, four-way stop at Prater Way/4th Street between El Rancho Drive and Galletti Way.

There is a new traffic pattern and flashing red signal on Prater Way/4th Street between El Rancho Drive and Galletti Way.  Drivers are encouraged to slow down and use caution.  There is one lane in each direction.  Additional lanes are for left turns. A flashing red signal light means exactly the same as a stop sign: STOP! After stopping, proceed when safe and observe right-of-way rules.

Speed Limits Enforced

The project team is working closely with Sparks and Reno Police Departments to enforce speed limits and traffic laws throughout the project corridor.  Please obey all posted speed limits and regulatory signage.
