Anyone who has ever visited us has experienced the 6 roundabouts that you have to go through to get to our house in Sierra Canyon. If you were coming from California this meant going to exit 9 and then essentially doing a u-turn after getting off the freeway and going five or so miles back to the west.
As long as we have lived here they have been working on a new road which comes into the back side of Sierra Canyon. The long awaited road opened last Friday. If you are coming to our house from the west you exit 80 at the first exit in Nevada (exit 2) and drive through Verdi to the new road Somersett Ridge Parkway. If you are coming from the east you get off 80 at exit 5 and essentially do a U-turn at the new roundabout to get on Somersett Ridge Parkway.
It is very exciting. The new road makes a huge improvement to our drive into Reno. It will be interesting to see when the new road get on to the mapping sites.
