The ReTRAC Enhancement Project was located in downtown Reno; south of Fourth Street, east of Virginia Street, north of Second Street, and west of Aces Ballpark. The project was constructed for the City of Reno. Funding was through a Federal grant administered by the Nevada Department of Transportation.
A downtown study (ReTRAC Enhancement Project Phase I) preceded the development of this design/construction project. The Phase I study had identified areas of priority and items of improvements. The streetscape enhancements were to incorporate recommendations from the City of Reno Redevelopment Agency Streetscape Masterplan standards.
The items of improvement were limited to wayfinding signage, landscape and irrigation improvements, stamped concrete sidewalks, street trees with tree grates and decorative lighting. The improvements had to address and meet the pedestrian accessibility needs of the downtown (ADAAG/ANSI requirements), as well as promoting the foot traffic between the Bowling Stadium and Aces Ballpark areas. Additionally, the design team was to coordinate placement of the new trees and tree grates with the new decorative lighting and improved electrical facilities.
The design teams’ scope of work included obtaining topographic information, developing construction documents, and providing construction administration and testing. Lumos was also tasked with the certification of the Public Rights-of-Way and both private and public utility facility locations.
