  5. Build noise, visual, and neighborhood walls.

SBX is Phase 1 under the Spaghetti Bowl Project umbrella. Because the entire Reno Spaghetti Bowl project is so large-scale, it is being divided into phases. SBX will address one of the areas of the Spaghetti Bowl with the most crashes: the eastbound I-80 to southbound I-580/U.S. 395 ramp and southbound I-580/U.S. 395 from the Spaghetti Bowl down to Mill Street
