Single Lane Closures for Paving of Kietzke Lane, Reno June 29

Post Date:06/27/2019 12:43 PM
Daytime single lane closures and short-duration side street and business access closures will take place on northern Kietzke Lane Saturday, June 29 as part of a Nevada Department of Transportation project to repave and enhance the roadway.
Between 2 a.m. and 9 p.m. Saturday, June 29, Kietzke Lane will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Mill Street and Galletti Way as crews place new pavement on the roadway. Business access will remain available, although businesses and cross street access will temporarily close as the paving operation passes those locations. Traffic flaggers will help drivers access businesses through the work zone. Drivers and community members are reminded to follow all traffic control for safety.
This marks the first weekend lane closures for the project. Intermittent weekday single lane, shoulder and sidewalk closures and minor traffic lane switches have been in place on Kietzke Lane between Mill Street and Galletti Way since March and will continue through early August, primarily during overnight hours of 7 p.m.-6 a.m. Sunday evenings through Friday mornings.
Kietzke Lane is being resurfaced and restriped, with slightly-realigned travel lanes to allow for designated bicycle lanes on both sides of the roadway. Existing sidewalks are being upgraded and new sidewalks and ramps installed where they currently do not exist. Other safety, accessibility and drainage improvements will also be made, including a pedestrian-activated flashing crossing sign at Prosperity Street and Kietzke Lane, allowing pedestrians to activate the signs to help stop traffic before crossing the street.
The approximately $3 million in improvements by contractor Granite Construction Company will enhance safety and mobility for the more than 20,000 drivers and pedestrians who travel the road each day. More than 100 pedestrians and bicyclists cross during peak times in a single day at the busiest three intersections on this section of Kietzke Lane.
The road enhancements are part of an NDOT Safety Management Plan. Each year, NDOT dedicates up to $10 million in state highway funds to pedestrian safety improvements. Additionally, NDOT dedicates approximately $21 million annually in federal highway safety funds to roadway safety projects and programs.
