The Vine Street corridor connects the west side of downtown Reno with University Terrace which is a key connection to the University of Nevada, Reno and a low stress alternative to Keystone Avenue.
This project will enhance the intersection of Vine Street and University Terrace with a peanut roundabout which will reduce vehicle speeds and enhance intersection safety. This project will add bike lanes to the roadway from University Terrace to 5th Street where the bicycle facility will transition to the outside edge of the roadway and cross the service road access from adjacent businesses and residences. Between 5th Street and 2nd Street this design concept will maintain vehicle parking and provide a parking protected bicycle lane while reutilizing excess roadway capacity in order to provide a thru lane in each direction with a center-turn lane. The conceptual facility would transition from a parking protected bicycle lane to a neighborhood greenway south of 2nd Street including corner bulb-outs, an RRFB at 1st Street and 2nd Streets, enhanced lighting and a crosswalk at Riverside Drive, and speed cushions placed at the mid-block to maintain low vehicle speeds. This segment of Vine Street is not listed as a Primary Emergency Vehicle Route (PEVR) which allows for the use of vertical deflection elements; further traffic calming effects may be achieved through use of modal filtering elements at 1st, 2nd, and 5th Streets.
