Project Weekly Update: February 2, 2018

Traffic will be moved to the south side of the roadway to accommodate removals on the north side.

Dear Stakeholder:
Below please find the project update for the week of January 29 and anticipated traffic control for the week of February 5, 2018.

Traffic Switch Planned for 4th Street/Prater Way Project

The project team is planning to switch traffic on 4th Street/Prater Way underneath I-80 between El Rancho Drive and Galletti Way starting Friday, February 2, 2018.  Traffic will be placed on the south side of the roadway so crews can begin sidewalk, curb and gutter removals on the north side of the roadway. The new traffic configuration will be in place throughout February. Drivers are urged to pay attention, slow down and obey traffic signs.

Traffic Control

  • Utility improvements on Sutro Street at 4th Street may begin the week of February 5. Drivers can expect lane restrictions.
  • Traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction from Rock Blvd. to Evans Ave. Businesses are open and accessible.
  • Possible side street closures throughout the project from Pyramid Way to Evans Ave. Please use posted detours.
  • Traffic control on Prater Way/4th Street between El Rancho Drive and Galletti Way includes lane reductions and a three-way stop east and westbound and at the I-80 westbound on and off ramps. Traffic lights at I-80 eastbound on and off ramps are still functioning normally.
  • For the safety of drivers, riders and crews, RTC bus routes 2, 5, 11, 13, 15, 25 and 26 are detoured. Access RTC Transit Services for more information. Detours will be in place throughout the project.
