Road closures start Monday for Highland Canal Storm Drain project

Post Date:08/18/2017
The City of Reno is asking residents for their patience during an upcoming road construction project to complete utility work on the Highland Canal Storm Drain Project.

Mesa Park Road/Mae Anne Avenue will be closed to through traffic from West Fourth Street to Leroy Street starting Monday, August 21, 2017 (Mesa Park Road becomes Mae Anne Avenue). Detour routes will be provided, and access to properties will be maintained.  

The road closure is expected to last through Friday, August 25, 2017. The closure will be required for the safety of all during utility relocation work, which is needed for the new storm drain pipe construction for the Highland Canal Storm Drain Project.

About the Highland Canal Storm Drain Project:

The City of Reno, Truckee Meadows Water Authority and Washoe County are partnering on a project designed to capture and convey stormwater in a constructed collection system to reduce sources of stormwater pollution into the Highland Canal.

The canal flows to the Chalk Bluff Water Treatment Facility, which treats and distributes water to the region. This project will involve underground trenching, which includes the placement of approximately 3,600 feet of new storm drain pipe.
