The reopening of the Virginia Street Bridge marks a new day for downtown Reno. Our reporter Rocio Hernandez spoke to locals about their new outlook on the area.
Reno resident Bob Alto moved to the neighborhood last year to be closer to his favorite spots along the river. He'd like the whole area to be re-branded.
"We just have to make Reno more inviting, not only for the people that live here, but the people that come to visit,” Alto said.
Leah Wigren spends a lot time downtown working as a lawyer. She says the area is often overlooked by locals.
