CH2M, Nevada Department of Transportation paving the way for critical Reno Spaghetti Bowl improvements

内华达州交通部选定了CH2M,提供了环境和初步设计服务,为重建Reno的过时的交汇处铺设了途径,以适应未来的旅行需求。

RENO, Nev., May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Nevada Department of Transportation selected CH2M to provide environmental and preliminary design services to pave the way for reconstruction of the outdated I-80/I-580/US 395 system to system interchange in Reno to accommodate future travel demands.

The project will include improvements on a total of ten service interchanges, one system to system interchange, braided/collector distributor systems and multiple local roads. When complete, the improvements will accomplish long-term goals to meet 2040 travel demands, decrease congestion and improve safety.

The Nevada Transportation Board, chaired by Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, along with the Regional Transportation Commission in Washoe County identified reconstructing the nearly 50-year-old Reno Spaghetti Bowl, which serves over 300,000 vehicles daily, as high-priority for the state. Due to the rapid growth in the region and the outdated design, the Spaghetti Bowl and adjacent interchanges often become congested, spiking an increase in accidents.

为支持更新交换的加速努力,CH2M的环境和初步设计服务将有助于NDOT达到其目标:

  • Accelerating delivery of the NEPA document for the project in less than three and a half years.
  • Minimizing right-of-way displacements and acquisitions, and utility impacts.
  • Identifying project-specific risks.
  • Developing a comprehensive stakeholder and public outreach plan.
  • Improving safety, operations and mobility in Reno and surrounding areas.
  • Enhancing the aesthetics though the core of the community.

"The Reno Spaghetti Bowl reconstruction is regionally significant, politically sensitive and technically complex," said Susan Martinovich, CH2M North American highways and bridges practice leader. "We understand how to get these types of improvements built because we're passionate about improving our world. In this case, we'll not only improve the commute for Nevada drivers and visitors, but also make the environmental and preliminary design process quicker and easier for NDOT."

The I-80/I-580/US 395 interchange reconstruction is not CH2M's first technically challenging, time-critical NDOT project. Over the last eight years, CH2M played an integral role in expediting the National Environmental Policy Act and design process on Project NEON in Las Vegas, the largest public works project in Nevada history. The firm is also working with NDOT to support the state's vision to develop a协同政策框架为了继续自主车辆和连接的车辆举措,并进一步铺平了该州的顺利和安全的运输未来。了解有关CH2M的工作的更多信息complex infrastructure projectsaround the globe.
