USA Parkway - I-80 to U.S. 50
The USA Parkway was
originally a privately built, six-mile-long road connecting Interstate 80 to
the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center east of Sparks. The Nevada Department of Transportation will extend the
Parkway by more than 12 miles to reach U.S. 50 near Silver Springs. The approximately 18-mile-long, four-lane state roadway between Interstate 80 and
U.S. 50 will further link the greater Reno/Sparks and
Fernley/Fallon areas with the U.S. 50 Silver Springs corridor, enhancing
regional mobility and creating an additional route for commuter, freight and
other traffic. The road will also help support regional economic development
and serve as another route in the event of emergency or weather-related road
The project is projected to reduce travel times by as much as 38% for
those traveling between U.S. 50 and I-80 in Storey and Lyon counties.
Ames Construction, Inc. has been awarded the Design-Build project. Project construction will begin in the spring of 2016, with the parkway scheduled to open to traffic by late 2017.
