Press Release: Oddie Wells Project Update: Half Intersection Closure and Detour

AUGUST 18, 2023

The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County and Granite Construction will close the southern half of the Oddie Boulevard and Silverada Boulevard intersection beginning Monday, August 21, 2023. The half-intersection closure will be in effect through August 25, 2023.

Traffic will detour to El Rancho Drive and Sutro Street to accommodate both east and west travel. Two-way traffic will remain in place on the north side of Oddie Boulevard.

The closure is due to traffic signal work as part of ongoing construction of Phase 2 of the Oddie Wells Project.

The RTC is reminding the traveling public to use extra caution in and around the construction zone, to take the alternative routes, and follow the speed limit for everyone’s safety.
