Reno Paving 

Phase 1 paving operations in Reno on 4th Street between Galletti Way and Montello Street are in process.  Galletti Way is OPEN. 6th Street at 4th Street is closed to through traffic from June 29 to July 18.  Please use signed detours. Traffic is reduced to one-way westbound until approximately July 28 on this section of 4th Street.

Phase 2 paving will begin around July 14 from Montello Street to Quincy Street. More details will be provided as the date approaches.

A process known as roadbed modification is used to remove, mix and replace the existing roadbed with a new, smooth roadway surface on 4th Street in Reno.
