Northwestern Nevada Construction Report
I-580/U.S.395 Spaghetti Bowl Bridge Resurfacing
The I-580/U.S. 395 Spaghetti Bowl Bridge Resurfacing project has wrapped up for the 2016 construction season. Construction will begin again in spring of 2017 and complete by early summer.
The approximately $1.5 million project by Truesdell Corporation will rehabilitate the aging roadway surface approaches to five bridges near the spaghetti bowl for a smoother and safer drive.
The work is part of NDOT's proactive pavement preservation program through which state roadway surfaces are preserved and resurfaced before reaching time for more extensive and costly repairs.
Nevada bridges have been named the nation's best in the last two years by ranking of U.S. Department of Transportation bridge data.
The Nevada Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, is extending USA Parkway from the current end of pavement south to U.S. 50 near Silver Springs in Lyon County. The extension will complete the 18-mile-long roadway and provide an additional connection between I-80 to U.S. 50. The new alignment will enhance accessibility and mobility between Lyon and Storey counties, as well as provide transportation infrastructure to support existing and planned land uses and economic development in both counties.USA Parkway

I-580 Road Improvements Through Washoe Valley
The Nevada Department of Transportation has finished construction of an auxiliary merge lane from Alternative U.S. 395/Eastlake Boulevard to southbound I-580 in north Carson City. The work was part of a project to repave the aging roadway surface, seismically retrofit bridges and make other improvements on Interstate 580 in Washoe Valley. The merge lane was extended 2,700 feet, providing additional space and safety to merge.
The project is also seismically retrofitting and enhancing the I-580 Bellevue Road bridge and Eastlake Boulevard underpass as part of NDOT's continuing effort to retrofit older bridges for enhanced safety and stability during potential earthquakes.
The approximately $15 million project by Q & D Construction is scheduled to complete in the fall of 2016. Approximately 32,000 vehicles travel I-580 daily in the area.

Mt. Rose (SR 431) Truck Escape Ramp
NDOT has begun a project by to enhance the State Route 431 Mt. Rose Highway truck escape ramp. The truck ramp, located on the westbound side of the highway in Incline Village, will be converted from the current rock surface to asphalt. A series of six pre-tensioned drag nets will be added to the truck ramp to catch the front grill of runaway vehicles and help safely absorb the impact to slow, then ultimately stop, the vehicle. The asphalt surface of the truck ramp will be heated to ensure that snow or ice does not hamper use of the nets during winter months. Two roadside flashing signs and one large overhead digital message sign will also be installed to alert drivers when a vehicle is in the truck ramp. The approximately $4.6 million project by Q & D Construction is scheduled to complete in the fall of 2016. Click here for more information.
