Speakers Bureau: Lowering the Union Pacific RR

In the 1860's Reno changed from a river crossing to a stopover for the transcontinental railroad. The town grew around the railroad to the point where long trains would delay emergency vehicles trying to cross town. Finally, after many years of debate and argument, a group composed of the Union Pacific Railroad, the Nevada Department of Transportation, the City of Reno and the Association of Casinos owners joined to finance a project to lower the railroad 35 feet below the street level for two miles through downtown Reno. Richard Short was a part of the team of geotechnical engineers who studied the project to determine the best way to excavate 35 feet deep through boulders and cobbles immediately adjacent to the existing buildings.

This event is free, though a $5+ suggested donation is welcome to help fund MCRC. Please RSVP to 836-0446. Light refreshments will be served. 

Speaker Series is a FREE event
