Community Invited to Transforming Virginia Street Construction Kick-Off Block Party


Reno, Nevada (August 14, 2018) – The Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County (RTC) and Midtown businesses invite the community to a Transforming Virginia Street Construction Kick-Off Block Party on Thursday, August 23 from 5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. at 800 S. Virginia Street (parking lot next to Midtown Eats) to mark the start of the Virginia Street Bus RAPID Transit Extension Project.

The event will be a pre-playa celebration with a construction photo booth, an art car and DJ. There will be free food, non-alcoholic beverages and giveaways. Attendees can sign up for Virginia Street project updates at the event for an opportunity to receive two Burning Man tickets and playa accessories.

There will be an opportunity for people to share their ideas with the City of Reno for potential public art in the corridor.

Attendees will be able to meet the project team, learn about the project and upcoming construction activities, and new ways to get to Midtown.

Construction on the Virginia Street Bus RAPID Transit Extension Project is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 4, 2018. The $80-million investment in our community will create connectivity between Midtown Reno and the University of Nevada, Reno, and will support economic development, enhance safety, and improve livability in the corridor. The project addresses critical transportation needs including improving transit connectivity, efficiency, and timeliness through connecting RAPID to the University, improving safety for all modes, correcting ADA sidewalk deficiencies, improving traffic operations and beautifying the corridor. The project is funded with fuel tax, federal and private funds.


I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard.For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card.I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".Contact me directly at lee@leeeverton.com for scheduling information.
