Spaghetti Bowl Project
The Interstate 80/Interstate 580 System-to-System Interchange, referred to as the Spaghetti Bowl, is located in Washoe County, Nevada. The Spaghetti Bowl was originally constructed between 1969 and 1971 for a metropolitan population of about 130,000 people. The current population of Washoe County has increased to approximately 420,000 people, with a forecasted growth rate exceeding state and national averages. As the existing Spaghetti Bowl nears its design capacity, the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC), will be phasing renovations to the Reno Spaghetti Bowl and approximately 12 miles of nearby interstate to enhance mobility and traffic safety for the Truckee Meadows.
At this time, project staff has identified Alternative 2 as the Preferred Alternative.
