Portion of Roop Street now open
Looking south down Roop Street from East William Street, the south portion of Roop is now paved. It opened to traffic Wednesday, said Carson City Transportation Director Patrick Pittenger. “A milestone was reached today,” he said. “At the same time, work has become more intensive on the north side of Roop Street,” expected to open at the end of the year. Workers are still putting the finishing touches on landscaping on the southern portion, the JAC bus shelter is in place, and striping of the road will be completed over the weekend. The Jump Around Carson bus schedule has changed slightly, and Pittenger recommends that riders interested in access to the senior center log on to http://www.ridejac.com for updated route information.
