I was so happy to receive an email this week from the City of Sparks about the re-opening of Sparks Boulevard. After almost eleven months of construction to install new sewer pipes they have finally completed the project and Sparks Boulevard is now re-opened. The timing couldn’t be better as the City now starts another project at the intersection of Los Altos Parkway and Vista Boulevard. With the considerable amount of growth the Sparks area has seen over the years, the need for these improvement projects is great. Although we find the delays and traffic an inconvenience, we are all more patient knowing that they will produce better roads and more smoothly flowing traffic when they are completed.
