Businesses Open During Construction!  

The RTC Project Team encourages the community to support businesses within the project corridor. This week the team installed 20 “Businesses Open During Construction” signs.  All businesses remain open with access during construction.

“This project provides important operational, safety and aesthetic improvements to the corridor,” said Warren Call, RTC Project Manager. “Our community is investing in Prater Way/4th Street and the businesses that make it unique.”


Traffic Control Week of May 15, 2017

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 ramp 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 rtcwashoe.com and click on Transit Alerts to sign up for the latest transit information. Detours will be in place throughout the summer.

Traffic control is in place on the west end of the project from Evans Avenue to Galletti Way. The south side of the roadway is closed for demolition and roadway reconstruction. Traffic is 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.

Possibly lane shifts with flagger on Prater Way between Rock Blvd. and 13th Street.
