The Virginia Street Bridge Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will be held Tuesday, April 12th, 2016 at 11:00 am. Please join in celebrating the opening of the new bridge as Mayor Schieve, the Reno City Council, Q&D Construction, Jacobs Engineering and all other project partners will be celebrating the completion of this significant project in downtown Reno. The City of Reno communications office will be releasing more information as the event nears, so stay tuned!

Downtown Virginia Prepares for Opening
The new Virginia Street Bridge will be ready for its ribbon cutting ceremony on April 12, 2016.

Reno Mayor, Hillary Schieve, will lead the ceremony along with other guest speakers. A procession of transportation history will cross the new bridge. It will feature vehicles covering the era during which the old bridge served Reno, with a world champion mule team, several historic vehicles from the National Automobile Museum and a modern Tesla. There will also be a performance from the Reno Wind Symphony. The bridge will remain closed to vehicles for the rest of the day so people can take pictures and freely stroll on the bridge.

Public parking will be available in the City Hall Parking Garage and the Cal-Neva Parking Garage, both accessible from Center Street. Arriving early is recommended.

Virginia Street Bridge Project

If you have gone downtown lately – you have noticed that a large part of Virginia St. is blocked off, near the Bruka theater. This makes for some tough parking situations if you need to get to that area. Don’t get caught parking in any restricted areas by the courthouse as that will not pan out well.

There are big changes happening to downtown Reno. Check out the new Virginia Street Bridge website, which details their project.

We invite you to discover more information about the Virginia Street Bridge Project. On their site you’ll learn about the project’s history and better understand the timeline for this exciting endeavor. Below you can even learn more about how this project impacts driving, biking, and walking in the downtown area.
