SEPTEMBER 8, 2023:

The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County and Granite Construction will intermittently close the south side of Oddie Boulevard at three intersections as part of Phase 2 of the Oddie Wells Project. Crews will alternate half-intersection closures of Sullivan Lane and El Rancho Drive on Monday, September 11. They will close half of the Silverada Boulevard intersection on Tuesday, September 12.

Two-way traffic will remain in place on the north side of Oddie Boulevard.

The daily intermittent closures will allow milling work in preparation for paving during the following week.

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.
