State Routes 445/447 Near Pyramid Lake
Department of Transportation began chip sealing State Routes 445 and 447 near
Pyramid lake in June to improve the highway surfaces.
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
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 aesthetics.
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 permitting.
