Approximately $15 million project to reconstruct and improve
Kingsbury Grade. Visit the project website www.kingsburyproject.com.
U.S. 50 Moundhouse
Final paving work will take place
during daytime hours as part of the finishing touches on the project.
Between October 21 and 25, lane closures will take place between 8 a.m. and 8
p.m. on U.S.50 between east Carson City and just east of the State Route 341
intersections as the final asphalt paving is placed on the roadway.
paving is temperature sensitive, and will take place during daytime hours,
weather dependent, to take advantage of the warmer temperatures. Once paving
completes, project work will continue through the end of November with striping
and shoulder, drainage and other final roadway improvements. Much of that final
roadwork will take place on the roadside, with minimal traffic delays or lane

million project to repave and make guardrail, drainage and safety
improvements on Mt. Rose Highway from Mt. Rose Junction (near Summit
Sierra Mall) to Mt. Rose Summit. Project began in early June and is
scheduled to end in fall 2015.
IMPROVED GUARDRAIL and CONCRETE RAIL
STRIPS - in areas near base of Mt. Rose Highway
SCALING/MESH on SLOPE - on westbound slope near summit
Single lane closures will take
place in each direction. Construction in the residential area at the
base of the highway will take place largely during nightime hours,
with minimal daytime work. Road work will take place both night
and day from the tree line up to the summit.
State Routes 445/447 Near Pyramid Lake
The Nevada Department of Transportation began chip sealing
State Routes 445 and 447 near Pyramid lake in June to improve the highway
State Route 445 Pyramid Highway is being resurfaced with a
double chip seal between mile markers 9 and 42, from near Sunset Springs
Lane/Egyptian Drive to approximately ten miles north of Sutclilffe. A
chip seal will also be placed on State Route 447 from mileposts 35 to 49,
halfway between Nixon and Gerlach.
The chip seal will help
protect and prolong pavement life by repaving the roadway with crushed
aggregate rock and asphalt. Often considered the best valule for road
maintenance dollar, chip seals also restore roadway friction and
One-way traffic with traffic controls and pilot cars
will be in place to safely guide motorists through the road work zone,
and delays of up to 30 minutes are to be expected during daytime hours.
Motorists are advised to drive at posted construction speed limits, or
slower as necessary for conditions. The approximately $2.5 million
project by contractor Seirra Nevada Construction is scheduled to
complete in September.
State Route 445: crews are
finishing up the chip seal process at mileposts 9 -10. During the week of
August 18-22, a top seal coating will be applied on top of the chip
seals from mileposts 9-38. No work will be done August 23 - September
8. The crews will finish up the project with striping SR445 during
the week of September 9-12--weather permitting.
Work on State
Route 447 should be finished the week of August 18-22--weather
