Overnight spaghetti bowl ramp closures and Mill Street lane reductions will take place in October and November as construction progresses on the Nevada Department of Transportation’s Spaghetti Bowl Xpress project in Reno.
NDOT SPAGHETTI BOWL PROJECT
Washoe County is expected to see an increase of over 147,000 people over the next 20 years. The area is seeing a welcome influx of more commercial and industrial enterprises. The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), in preparation for continued population growth, is improving portions along Interstate 80, Interstate 580, and U.S. 395, with particular attention to the I-80/I-580 Interchange, also known as the Spaghetti Bowl. In addition to these improvements, future traffic projections will be analyzed and infrastructure needs will be identified to take the Reno-Sparks area through the year 2040.
Spaghetti Bowl improvements include short, mid and long-range projects. Long-range projects may include the widening of the freeway and interchange ramps to accommodate increased traffic volumes.
