State Approves $4.8 Million Contract To Begin Spaghetti Bowl Work

Jun 4, 2018

The state transportation board has taken the first concrete step toward completely redesigning and reconstructing Reno's Spaghetti Bowl, where I-80 and U.S. 395 meet. Our contributor Kaleb Roede of the Northern Nevada Business Weekly has the details.

The board, headed by Gov. Brian Sandoval, recently approved a $4.8 million contract with CH2M in Reno to engineer and design improvements to relieve congestion before the actual Spaghetti Bowl is rebuilt.

That will pave the way for the Nevada Department of Transportation board to approve a construction contract for the so-called Reno Early Action Project worth upwards of $135 million next summer.

The existing interchange between I-80 and U.S. 395 was built in the 1970s when the population of the Truckee Meadows was a quarter of what it is now.
