Media Contact: Josh MacEachern |

The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County and Granite Construction will implement a short intersection closure at Oddie Boulevard and Silverada Boulevard for traffic signal improvements. The right turn lanes will remain open at the intersection. Westbound traffic on Oddie Boulevard will be detoured at El Rancho Drive for the day of construction.

The closure is planned over the President’s Day holiday to minimize impact to school schedules and commuter traffic. Plan your travel accordingly and follow detours as marked via Orovada Street or East 9th Street / G Street.

Currently in Phase 4 of construction, this RTC-sponsored multimodal improvement project is revitalizing the area by creating a safer corridor from the intersection of Oddie Boulevard and Pyramid Way in Sparks to the Wells Avenue and I-80 intersection in Reno.


About the Oddie Wells Project: The Oddie Wells Project will increase safety, connectivity, and mobility options along this heavily traveled corridor. The project plans include new lighting, landscaping, ADA improvements, pedestrian ramps, and bicycle facilities, providing safer traffic operations. Corridor improvements will support economic investment and redevelopment while enhancing the quality of life for area residents by improving accessibility and safety. Construction will be completed in four phases and is anticipated to be complete by fall of 2024, weather permitting. For more information, please visit
