RENO — The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) is preparing a plan that identifies sidewalk, crosswalk and intersection barriers for pedestrians, including people in wheelchairs. The Public Right of Way Americans with Disabilities Act Transition Plan will examine obstructions that could include power poles, cracks, missing curbs or ramps and more.

The plan will help the agency decide what types of barriers will be addressed and when. To gain public input, RTC has scheduled public meetings in the community scheduled for:

9 to 11 a.m. today at the Reno Senior Center, 1155 E. Ninth St.

1 to 3 p.m. today at the Center for Independent Living, 999 Pyramid Way in Sparks

9 to 11 a.m. Friday at the Sparks Senior Center, 97 Richards Way

1 to 3 p.m. Friday at Vocational Rehabilitation Center, 1325 Corporate Blvd. in Reno

Public comment is welcome and can be sent to Katy Cole at or Fehr & Peers, 50 W. Liberty St., Suite 1090, Reno, NV 89501.
