RTC studying potential routes between Spanish Springs and Lemmon Valley

By Carla O'Day

The Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County on Friday heard about plans to build a connector road between Lemmon Valley and Spanish Springs to help improve regional traffic flow, although if approved, construction would be 7 to 20 years in the future.

One potential alignment is fro…

Housing values will drop once folks realize it takes too long to get back and forth to Reno alone, let alone the North Valleys, which is also a true issue. Without better infrastructure, the homes being built here in SS are going to be sold for a lot, and then become undesirable as traffic will cause a lot of angst. 7-20 years is WAY too far in the future to get anything going. The best idea might be to convert Pyramid highway into a freeway, connecting to I-80 somehow, or ensure the 395 connector isn’t built stupidly like Veteran’s Parkway, which should have been created with overpasses.

With all the additional traffic on Pyramid due to the now open link to Wingfield Springs Road, and all the new homes being built on the East side of Pyramid before any of these proposals take place, Pyramid needs to be widened to 6 lanes at the very least from Eagle canyon all the way South to McCarran. There should also be an access road from Vista near the ball fields to the other side of the ridge, that would run along the back side of the ridge to I-80 East of Vista/Greg. This could be done in a similar manner to the way 580 South runs above Pleasant Valley, so as not to interfere any more than absolutely necessary with the valley below. There are not enough exits to Spanish Springs now, and yet the City of Sparks and Washoe County keep allowing the builders to destroy the valley.

As a Spanish Springs resident whose daughter’s best friend lives in Cold Springs, this has been a wish of ours for years. It is ridiculous how much backtracking is necessary to get from Spanish Springs to the North Valleys.
