Nevada 667 (Kietzke Lane) curves southwest over the Truckee River on a pair of 1966-built bridges. Photo taken 06/28/14.

Nevada 667 constitutes a nearly four mile route along a five lane boulevard or divided four lane arterial through Reno. Overlaying Kietzke Lane, the state route branches north from U.S. 395 Business (South Virginia Street) around the east side of the Reno-Sparks Convention Center to Moana Lane. Commercial frontage ranging from auto dealerships, retail stores and industrial businesses line much of the route north to the bridge across the Truckee River.The northern extent curves east to end at the Kietzke Lane intersection with Galletti Way. Galletti Way straddles the Sparks city line north to Business Loop I-80 (East 4th Street / Prater Way) adjacent to a diamond interchange with Interstate 80. SR 667 formerly extended slightly further north to Business Loop I-80 (Victorian Way) and Prater Way.

Kietzke Lane also carried U.S. 395 temporarily northbound from South Virginia Street to East 2nd Street, and from Mill Street southward. The short lived alignment was in place during construction to extend the U.S. 395 freeway southward in 1982.
