Transportation meeting set to discuss regional projects
CARSON CITY, Nev. – An open house to discuss transportation plans that will affect Western Nevada will be hosted by the Tahoe Transportation District, Northern Nevada Transportation Collaborative and local, state, regional and federal agencies, 4-7 p.m. Wednesday at the Nevada Legislative Building, Room 3100 in Carson City.
“The various transportation projects will positively influence daily work and recreational needs for area residents in the greater Carson City, Carson Valley, Reno, Lake Tahoe areas,” said Tahoe Transportation District Manager Carl Hasty.
“Connecting the various systems will promote safety, convenience, economic growth and quality of life we all enjoy. We want to know what the folks who will be affected by these efforts think about the projects.”
Outlines will be available for numerous projects including the Carson City freeway corridor, Reno-Tahoe International Airport, Tahoe East Shore Beaches Trail, Aquatic Trail, and Regional Bike Trails, as well as other transportation improvement issues.
Residents are encouraged to comment and ask questions of representatives from the Tahoe Transportation District, Northern Nevada Transportation Collaborative, Nevada Department of Transportation, Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County, Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority, Carson City Regional Transportation Commission, Douglas County, Washoe County Parks, Carson City Parks, Nevada State Parks and the U.S. Forest Service.
The open house will provide residents with a chance to look at plans for projects that re-enforce the connections between trails, roads, transit and air while promoting sustainable communities and a better economy. Complimentary appetizers and beverages will be served.
