VIRGINIA STREET RAPID TRANSIT EXTENSION PROJECT
The RTC Board will discuss the Virginia Street Bus RAPID Transit Extension Project at its board meeting this Thursday 1 pm at the Washoe County Commission Chambers. Specifically, a possible redesign of the approved design concept from Liberty to Vassar. This discussion will only focus on whether to install a center median and eliminate left turn lanes, including sidewalk widths (which at minimum will be ADA compliant), reducing or not having trees depending on sidewalk space. Bike lanes are not a consideration.
At its November meeting, a group of individuals asked the RTC Board to reverse the decision of the approved design. To do so, the discussion must take place in a public forum which gives all members of the public the opportunity to give input for this public right-of-way. City of Reno owns the street and ultimately their decision of the improvements to be made. The RTC encourages interested individuals to attend the Thursday meeting. The agenda & staff report are available at rtcwashoe.com. For project info visit www.virginiastreetrapidextension.com.
