Complete Street Economic Analysis Survey
The Complete Street Economic Analysis Study is a partnership between RTC and the University of Nevada, Reno. The purpose of the study is to determine the economic impacts of roadways where Complete Streets have been implemented. Many studies have shown the numerous safety benefits of Complete Streets including reducing crashes and pedestrian injuries/fatalities. Yet there is minimal information about the economic impacts to businesses and homeowners related to economic indicators such as property values, crime and vacancy rates. The results of this study will allow us to better understand the impact Complete Streets have on neighborhoods and area businesses. We will use this information to make the Truckee Meadows a more livable, safer, healthier and prosperous community.

The SouthEast Connector Project is an important investment in the Truckee Meadows that addresses long-term transportation needs and improves the mobility of people, goods and services throughout northern Nevada. The project is an ongoing effort between the RTC, partner agencies and the community that began almost 40 years ago. Once completed, the new roadway will stretch 5.5 miles from the intersection of Greg Street and Sparks Boulevard at the northern end, to South Meadows Parkway and Veterans Parkway at the southern end. The road will be three lanes in each direction with two new signals at Mira Loma Drive and Pembroke Drive. Visit southeastconnector.com for more detailed information.
Geiger Grade Realignment Project
The Geiger Grade Road project has been suspended until the SouthEast Connector project is completed (the second phase will link to South Meadows Parkway). Improvements to the Geiger Grade network will be re-evaluated upon completion of the SouthEast Connector.
The purpose of the project is to provide relief for projected traffic volumes at the Geiger Grade/Veterans Parkway roundabout and the Mt. Rose/Virginia Street intersection.
