For over 100 years the Virginia Street Bridge quietly stayed the same, carrying residents and visitors into the heart of the Biggest Little City while Reno, Nevada grew and changed around it. Lasting well past its service life, the bridge’s history gave way to safety and flood-control concerns. The City of Reno, in partnership with the Truckee River Flood Management Authority, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and Federal Highway Administration, implemented a plan to replace the bridge while respectfully preserving its distinguished history.
Now, the project is complete and we invite you to come to downtown Reno and enjoy the new Virginia Street Bridge, nearby business, and amenities. The City of Reno, Q&D Construction, Jacobs Engineering and all our project partners would like to thank those involved in the project. It is our sincere hope that we all continue to enjoy the new bridge for many, many years to come.
