RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Regional Transportation Commission is asking for public comment on the Pyramid Way and McCarran Boulevard Intersection Improvement Project.
Proposed improvements include widening Pyramid Way to three lanes in each direction (north-south) from a reconfigured Queen Way to Tyler Way. McCarran Boulevard would remain two lanes in each direction (east-west) but with additional turning lanes.
On Tuesday, March 19th, the RTC will hold a public hearing to present the DEIS at John Ascuaga’s Nugget, Ponderosa Conference Room B from 4 to 7 p.m. The purpose of the hearing is to present the Preferred Alternative and obtain public input on the DEIS. Project representatives will be on hand to discuss the project and answer questions during the hearing. There will be a brief presentation about the project at 5:30 p.m.
