Reno Drive

Address: Running E.-W. between W. 56th Ave. and W. 55th Pl., from Saulsbury Ct. to Otis Ct., and along the S. side of the Colorado & Southern R.R. tracks from Dover St. to Wadsworth Blvd. in Arvada.

When the 1870 plat for Arvada was laid out, the portion from Wadsworth to Dover Street was called Railroad Avenue and later became Reno Drive. Louis A. Reno was the town father who drew up the 1890 plat of Arvada and had also done many fine things for the community. Reno Drive was named for him.
