Nevada Department of Transportation Announces Preliminary Geotechnical Work for Future Reno Spaghetti Bowl Project

CARSON CITY, Nev. – Drivers will see temporary interstate shoulder and single lane closures near the spaghetti bowl and on Interstate 580 over coming weeks as the Nevada Department of Transportation conducts preliminary geotechnical soil surveys in advance of future spaghetti bowl renovations.

When: Monday, March 2-Friday, March 6, 7 am to 6 pm

What: Shoulder closures on Spaghetti Bowl eastbound I-80 to I-580 southbound and northbound ramps. No travel lane closures.

When: Monday, March 16-Friday, March 20, overnight hours

What: Single lane and shoulder closures on I-580 and various ramps.

The work schedule is subject to change.

The geotechnical soil surveys will provide data on soil features to help finalize engineering designs for future construction of the first phase of spaghetti bowl improvements.

No additional major construction is anticipated over coming months as engineering designs are finalized, although drivers will see periodic minor lane closures for additional geotechnical exploration. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin later this year.
