SPARKS, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Traffic control for the RTC SouthEast Connector project Phase 1 begins on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013 at the intersection of Greg Street and Sparks Blvd.
Kiewit Construction will be improving the intersection by widening Sparks Blvd. and Greg Street to accommodate access to and from the new roadway.
This traffic control will result in lane reductions for the safety of motorists and construction crews. Motorists are encouraged to use
McCarran Blvd. and Vista Blvd. to access Greg Street. Business and emergency access will be maintained at all times.
Work at the intersection is anticipated to last approximately six months.
RTC says these improvements are needed to construct the Truckee River Bridge and roadway from Sparks Blvd. and Greg Street to just south of Clean Water Way. Actual construction of the bridge foundation and drill shafts will start in March 2013. Completion of the bridge is estimated in spring 2014.
