About the Keystone Bridge Project: The objective of the Keystone Bridge Replacement is to provide a structurally sound Keystone Avenue bridge over the Truckee River in Reno, Nevada, and improve mobility options in the corridor surrounding the bridge, approximately from California Avenue to West 1st Street.  The replacement of the Keystone Bridge is federally funded by Federal Bridge Formula Program (BFP).  Additional funding will be required to cover improvement beyond the limits of bridge funding. This project is led by the Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County (RTC), in cooperation with the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), and the City of Reno, with the active participation of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and other key stakeholders.
