The SouthEast Connector (SEC) is a regional roadway that will run from the intersection of Sparks Boulevard and Greg Street in the north, to South Meadows Parkway and Veterans Parkway in the south. It is a six lane non-elevated roadway with multi-use paths.
The SEC is a vital link that connects the south part of the Truckee Meadows with the east part of the Truckee Meadows. The only other continuous link that serves this purpose is US-395 to I-80, which is reaching critical capacity. All other
regional roads in the southeast part of the Truckee Meadows are also reaching critical capacity. The SEC provides much needed relief to the entire transportation network.The SEC is a regional roadway that has been planned and discussed for over 40 years. Developments in south Reno and Sparks have been approved because the SEC is on the Regional Transportation Plan. Existing new roadways have been approved for future capacity needs assuming the SEC is built. If the SEC is not
built, those roadways do not have the ability to handle additional capacity
without major impacts to homes, apartments, businesses, etc.
