In the race to keep up with aging infrastructure, population growth and changing fiscal realities, the time is ripe for Reno, Sparks the Regional Transportation Commission officials to change the way they build our roads. Nevada could save driving taxpayers tens of millions of dollars during the next several years by considering better pavements and a better process for road construction.
Many transportation agencies around the country are using economic tools that help them choose the most cost-effective highway project alternatives.
Your friends at SmartRoadsNV have tried to share latest tools and techniques with local road officials, but we haven't been able to crack the bureaucracy that controls the development of roads...even though we are trying to save taxpayers money.

SmartRoadsNV is an awareness and public education campaign about getting more from our road tax dollars. It is brought to you by The Sierra Nevada Concrete Association. The SNCA is an active force in promoting the use of quality concrete for all types of construction; from tilt-up logistics and manufacturing facilities, to lower-life cycle cost concrete pavements for roadways and parking lots. The SNCA provides public officials, engineers, architects and private developers with access to information regarding concrete in the Northern Nevada/California region.
The SNCA also provides continuing education for construction and architecture professionals, and supports student construction engineering with scholarships. SNCA is a long-time sponsor of the championship University of Nevada Concrete Canoe Team.
