The city of Sparks and NV Energy, will begin work to upgrade its natural gas service, with the installation of an natural gas main on Sparks Blvd. Throughout the 12-week project, NV Energy’s contractor for the project, Q & D Construction, will close the pedestrian/bike path that runs parallel to the North Truckee Drain. Detours will be in place. Also, the southbound inside lane of Sparks Blvd. from south of Baring Blvd. to north of Prater Way will be closed Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The timing of these closures will allow both lanes to be open during the important morning commute by residents of Sparks and Spanish Springs.
