US 395 North Valleys project in Reno

(1/1)

roadfro:
NDOT started work this week on a major multi-year project along US 395 in Reno, aimed to increase capacity and operations on the freeway in the growing North Valleys region.

The overall project will improve the four-mile stretch from N. McCarran Blvd to Stead Blvd. Major improvements include:
[*]Widening US 395 southbound to 3 lanes
[*]Auxiliary lanes between interchanges
[*]Pavement reconstruction
[*]Braided ramps between the N. Virginia St (Bus US 395/Panther Valley) on ramp and the Golden Valley Road off ramp in the northbound direction
The phase beginning now is Phase 1B, which incorporates improvements between N. McCarran and Golden Valley Road, including the braided ramps. (Phase 1A, reconstructing the Parr Blvd bridge, was completed in 2020.)

The Ghostbuster:
Will this portion of the US 395 corridor be brought up to Interstate Standards, even though it will never become part of Nevada's Interstate 580 (due to California's Interstate 580)?

pderocco:
Maybe it will be part of I-11.

It mostly already is. The northbound direction currently has inadequate shoulders, because NDOT shoehorned in a third lane years ago (I think a makeshift climbing lane expansion, which probably helped capacity when they did it). I haven't seen any plans, but I gotta imagine that they're going to make this more legit since they are widening and repaving anyway.

US 395:
It's nice that NDOT is finally getting the expansion going. Definitely much needed. Probably would've preferred eight through lanes to futureproof the road a bit and handle the residential and industrial developments but six is better than nothing
