RENO — Work was completed Friday on the installation of a new crosswalk, pedestrian flasher system and street lighting at North Virginia Street at 17th Street.

Spot Devices supplied the pedestrian flasher system and Titan Electrical performed the installation, all free of charge. City staff installed the pedestrian signs and crosswalk striping.

The city of Reno also worked with NV Energy to install a street light on an existing utility pole adjacent to the new crosswalk.

Since September 2010, the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) has been working with the Old Northwest Neighborhood Advisory Board to identify areas that created pedestrian safety concerns in their neighborhood. The resulting plan has several components, including this permanent crosswalk at North Virginia and 17th streets. The Reno City Council requested the work on the crosswalk to be expedited and 16 calendar days later it is in place, along with the flasher system and street light.
