USA Parkway - I-80 to U.S. 50

Project Description

USA Parkway Logo Resize

USA Parkway is a partially-constructed roadway beginning at the recently completed interchange on Interstate 80 approximately 10 miles east of Reno in Storey County.

 

The Nevada Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, is proposing an extension of USA Parkway from the current end of pavement south to U.S. 50 near Silver Springs in Lyon County. The extension will complete the 18-mile-long roadway and provide an additional connection between I-80 to U.S. 50. The new alignment will enhance accessibility and mobility between Lyon and Storey counties, as well as provide transportation infrastructure to support existing and planned land uses and economic development in both counties.

 

The USA Parkway Project is currently in the environmental phase. This phase includes the preparation and review of multiple alternatives to extend USA Parkway to U.S. 50 while adhering to the rules and regulations of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This phase also includes the preparation of the preliminary (30%) plans for the selected alternative.

 

To date, NDOT has performed the Cost Benefit Risk Analysis for the extension to U.S. 50.
