The Nevada Department of Transportation is currently working to resurface McCarran Boulevard between South Virginia and West Fourth streets in Reno. This project is part of general pavement maintenance which will help ensure quality and service of the busy road.
The project will enhance safety and mobility on McCarran Boulevard.
- Nearly three inches of roadway surface will be removed and repaved on more than six miles of McCarran Boulevard.
- Existing roadway medians will be slightly raised in certain areas to more safely separate opposite directions of travel.
- Select right turn pockets, including at Greensburg Circle, will be reconfigured and restriped for enhanced visibility and accessibility for bicyclists.
- Roadway accessibility will also be improved with new sidewalk ramps and new pedestrian crosswalk push buttons.
- New trees and landscaping treatments will also replace older roadway landscaping.
What to Expect
Beginning in June of 2020, single lane closures will take place from Sunday evenings through Friday mornings from 7p.m. to 6a.m. nightly. To minimize travel disruptions, one lane in each direction will remain open at all times. Business and residential access will remain available during construction.
Lane closures will first take place between West Fourth Street and Cashill Boulevard and then proceed southeast to reach South Virginia Street. Speed limits may be reduced in the work zone.
Motorists are advised to drive at posted work zone speed limits, or slower as necessary for conditions.
