Construction Contractor: To be determined

The traffic Signal Timing project is a collaborative partnership between the RTC, Cities of Reno and Sparks, and the UNR Center for Advanced Transportation Education and Research. The goal of the project is to continue the re-timing of 1/3 of the signals each year and to expand signal timing plans to include weekends, holidays and special event plans, if possible. The schedule of work for a typical corridor consists of the following:

  • Collect traffic and signal data
  • Input timings into model and evaluate existing signal timing
  • Develop new timing and implement in the field
  • Fine-tune timing, and conducting before-after studies

This project will provide signal re-timing engineering services for a 3-year cycle beginning in July, 2023 and concluding in June 2026.

New signal timing plans have been implemented on the following corridors due to impacts from US-395 construction:

  • North Virginia Street between North McCarran Boulevard and Panther Drive
  • Clear Acre Lane between North McCarran Boulevard and US-395

The following corridors will be re-timed next:

El Rancho Drive between G Street and Galletti Way

Prater Way between Sullivan Lane and Gelletti Way

Next focus areas for the team will be North Virginia Street and Sun Valley Boulevard due to ongoing construction in the area.
