RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Regional Transportation Commission is seeking public input using a survey to consider potential improvements for the Virginia Street corridor.
The RTC has initiated a corridor investment planning process on Virginia Street from the proposed Geiger Grade alignment south of Mt. Rose Highway to North McCarran Boulevard. The purpose of this study is to conduct a multimodal (pedestrian, bicycle, transit and automobile) analysis for transportation improvements on Virginia Street.
The study will identify recommendations for increasing mobility options, improving safety, addressing parking needs, and collaborating with stakeholders and economic development efforts within the corridor.
The public is being asked to share their ideas, comments and concerns about the corridor through an online survey to help RTC develop a base of community preferences for analysis and discussion by the project team and stakeholders. The Virginia Street Corridor Study survey is available in English and Spanish through July 31st at www.rtcwashoe.com
under HOT TOPICS. Additionally, various business locations throughout the corridor are assisting the RTC with a notice within their establishments to promote the study to the public and provide them access to the survey using technology by scanning a QR Code.
Other opportunities for public participation throughout the study’s year-long planning process will include stakeholder and community meetings, workshops and through social media partners. Interested individuals may contact the RTC Planning Department at email@example.com to be added to the project database for event notification, study information or to ask questions.
