NDOT's main priority is the safety, connectivity and mobility of all Nevada state roads. That's why we are undertaking a series of Safety Management Plans (SMPs) throughout Nevada.
SMP's analyze safety issues and concerns in a specific area by incorporating crash data, accessibility, public and stakeholder input and roadway engineering. The goal of these studies is to ultimately improve the safety, mobility and connectivity of the area so pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles can all securely access and share the road.
The SMP process is consistent with the Nevada Strategic Highway Safety Plan's goals of reducing crashes and fatalities, particularly at intersections, in half by 2030.
Second Street and Arlington Avenue
NDOT is developing a Safety Management Plan to evaluate and improve safety on Second Street between Keystone and Galletti avenues, Arlington Avenue between Court and West Sixth streets and Kuenzli Street from Second to Giroux streets. As part of the plan, existing roadway safety, lighting, sight distance, lane configuration, usage and accessibility will be evaluated. Proposed improvements include reconfiguring roadway lanes and making spot improvements to improve safety, mobility and connectivity so pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles can all more securely access and share the streets. The short-term and long-term safety improvements could be made in future years as funding becomes available.
The Kietzke Lane Safety Management Plan is an effort that examined the safety issues and concerns on Kietzke Lane from Galletti Way to South Virginia Street in Reno and made recommendations for improvements to enhance safety for all road users. The study's aim is to ultimately improve the safety, mobility and connectivity of Kietzke Lane so that pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles can all more securely access and share the road. The study took approximately 12 months and, using data and input from the public, the study's recommendations have been prioritized into proposed short and long term improvements to potentially be completed based on funding and needs.

Eastern Avenue/Civic Center Drive
The Eastern Avenue/Civic Center Drive Safety Management Plan will study ways to improve safety, mobility and connectivity on Civic Center Drive from Cheyenne Avenue to Owens Avenue and Eastern Avenue from Owens to U.S. 95. The study will evaluate safety issues, road user and roadway characteristics and planned development in the area. Short and long-term improvements could be made in future years as funding becomes available.
