June 2018 Flyover Video

Dear Stakeholder:

The project team has created the June 2018 flyover video showcasing Phase 2 construction progress. Each video begins at the southern end of the project (Segment 1) at the current intersection of South Meadows Parkway and Veterans Parkway and concludes at the northern end of the project at the intersection of Sparks and Greg Street (Segment 4).

Major construction advancements since May’s video include:

  • Multi-use path embankment graded near Huffaker Bridge
  • Falsework removed from northbound structure of Huffaker Bridge
  • Completed soundwall on Mira Loma Bridge
  • Poured median on Mira Loma Bridge
  • Mira Loma intersection completed and open to traffic
  • Striped lanes in Segment 3 (through Rosewood Lakes Golf Course)

You can watch the latest flyover video, and other videos featuring important aspects of the project, by visiting the ‘Videos’ page on the project website HERE. You can also subscribe to the SouthEast Connector Project and RTC Washoe channels on YouTube to receive project and video updates.

The project team will be producing a flyover video of the June 30 sneak preview fun run, walk, bike event. Stay tuned!
