Agenda Item Brief:

This Interlocal Cooperative Agreement (ICA) is to approve the FY 2015/2016 RTC Program of Projects.  Attached to this agenda item is the ICA with the specific projects scheduled for Sparks, Reno, and Washoe County.


The RTC is in the eighth year of the Regional Pavement Preservation Program.  The program identifies the specific needs for regional road maintenance throughout the Truckee Meadows.  This process was again used this year to rank potential roadway preservation projects.  The City of Sparks Pavement Quality Team and Utility Division work very closely with the RTC to prioritize regional road projects in the City of Sparks.  The overall funding for the region-wide RTC and Federally funded categories for the FY 2015/2016 POP is estimated to be $346,264,263.

Anticipated pavement preservation and corridor improvement projects in Sparks include:

  • Corrective Maintenance Projects (City wide)
  • Preventative Maintenance (slurry seals, etc., City wide)
  • 4th & Prater Corridor Project – Final Design and ROW (Evans to Pyramid)
  • Prater Way Enhancement Ph 4 (22nd to 20th)
  • ADA Pedestrian Transition Improvement Plan – 2015 (City wide)

Anticipated capacity and congestion relief projects in Sparks include:

  • Traffic Engineering Spot Intersection 4 & 5 (City wide intersection capacity improvements)
  • Bike and Pedestrian Improvements 2016
  • Traffic Management 2015 & 2016 (Master Plan, Fiber Optic and ITS Equipment)


  1. City Council could approve the Interlocal Cooperative Agreement as outlined by Staff.
