Project Maps


The SouthEast Connector is a Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County road improvement project located in Reno, Nevada. The project includes construction of a new 5.5 mile arterial road, seven bridges, two signalized intersections and a multi-use path for recreational users. The project also includes environmental and safety enhancements. The new roadway, will be dedicated Veterans Parkway, and will be three lanes in each direction with a posted speed limit of 45 MPH.

After analyzing the impact of the significant storms that hit the Truckee Meadows this past winter, the project is now slated for completion in spring 2018.

Early Morning, Night, and Weekend Work

Night time and early morning work on the project is possible between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. as temperatures increase for the summer season. Several structures are scheduled to receive concrete pours in the coming months. Night work and early morning work is needed for lower ambient air temperatures, higher humidity and calmer winds that allow slower concrete curing resulting in a better product.

The project team is taking several precautions to minimize any noise and light impacts to nearby residents. Equipment working near homes will have White Noise Backup Alarms to muffle the sound, and light plants will be setup facing away from homes.

Weekend work is also possible. During the Pembroke Closure, between June 12 and August 6, Granite Construction will be working Saturdays in an effort to complete the intersection and reopen Pembroke as quickly as possible.
