From the Ask Joe file one of our viewers has a question about an issue we addressed last week: construction of a new apartment complex in the Keystone Canyon area.
Mary wrote in saying she saw our story and she's wondering if the city of Reno is going to require a new traffic signal as part of this development ?
She says that was going to be a requirement before the economy caused the project to be put on hold back in 2008.
Some grading has started in the area of North Mccarran and Leadership Parkway, up near Keystone Canyon which is a popular hiking area.
I checked with Bill Gall in the community development department at the city of Reno.
Gall says the apartment complex is the first project of the Keystone Canyon Planned Unit Development.
The apartment complex alone will not necessitate a new traffic signal but as development proceeds a new signal will eventually be required.
Gall says the city, the developer and NDOT will work closely during every phase of the development to monitor traffic levels and make sure that a signal is installed once traffic levels start to reach certain thresholds that have already been outlined by city planners.
