The Nevada Department of Transportation is fast tracking a planned connector between I-80 and Hwy 50 through the Tahoe Regional Industrial Center (TRIC). TRIC is about 15 miles east of Reno and is home to large scale distribution centers as well as Tesla’s battery gigaplant.
USA Parkway is the off ramp from I-80 running through TRIC. The expansion to Hwy 50 was scheduled for completion in 2019, but due to the growth in the region, it will now open late 2017.
Upon completion, this connector will reduce travel time and be a vital delivery corridor for both freight and employees.
