USA Parkway - I-80 to U.S. 50
USA Parkway is a partially-constructed
roadway beginning at the recently completed interchange on Interstate 80
approximately 10 miles east of Reno in Storey County.
Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the Federal Highway
Administration, is proposing an extension of USA Parkway from the current end
of pavement south to U.S. 50 near Silver Springs in Lyon County. The
extension will complete the 18-mile-long roadway and provide an additional
connection between I-80 to U.S. 50. The new alignment will enhance
accessibility and mobility between Lyon and Storey counties, as well as
provide transportation infrastructure to support existing and planned land
uses and economic development in both counties.
Parkway Project is currently in the environmental phase. This phase
includes the preparation and review of multiple alternatives to extend USA
Parkway to U.S. 50 while adhering to the rules and regulations of the
National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This phase also includes the
preparation of the preliminary (30%) plans for the selected alternative.
