USA Parkway - I-80 to U.S. 50

Project Description

USA Parkway Logo Resize

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 closures.

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.

Project Timeline

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.
