Sparks, NV: Planning a New 4-Lane Highway

Currently, the USA Parkway is a privately built, six-mile-long road connecting from Interstate 80 into the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center east of Sparks. A proposed NDOT project will extend the Parkway by more than 12 miles to reach U.S. 50 near Silver Springs, creating an approximately 18-mile-long, four-lane state roadway between Interstate 80 and U.S. 50. The new roadway would further link the greater Reno/Sparks and Fernley/Fallon areas with the U.S. 50 Silver Springs corridor, enhancing regional mobility and creating an additional route for commuter, freight and other traffic.

Power lines, transmission stations and power plants have become a part of the landscape — to the point that we hardly notice them.
