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