From Bauserman Group:

Nevada Department of Transportation’s (NDOT) Kingsbury Grade (SR207) Pavement Reconstruction Project reopens to through traffic Friday, May 23 at approximately noon. The next phase of construction begins Tuesday, May 27 with night work beginning at approximately 9 p.m.

The closure of Kingsbury Grade from May 1 through May 23 has resulted in the completion of 5,000 cubic yards of excavation, installation of 2,600 tons of new asphalt and 1,800 feet of new curb and gutter. The accelerated construction schedule will enable the project to be completed in 12 to 18 months rather than three years. “We appreciate everyone’s patience during this closure, which enabled construction work that usually takes months to complete, to be completed in 23 days,” NDOT Project Manager Pedro Rodriguez said.

Construction continues during the summer months starting Tuesday, May 27 through Friday, Aug. 29, with Kingsbury Grade open to through traffic. However, nighttime construction-related lane closures and delays are expected. The road will be open with one lane in each direction during daytime hours, weekends and all holidays through these summer months with no restrictions.

The approximately $15 million project will reconstruct pavement and make drainage, safety, curb and gutter, sidewalk, lighting and other improvements on areas of Kingsbury Grade from just east of Daggett Summit (Tramway Drive) to the intersection of U.S. 50 at Stateline. Construction follows a very aggressive schedule to complete the project in an accelerated 12 to 18 months.

The project uses the Construction Manager at Risk process, which brings project designers and contractors together at the start of the project with the goal of completing it more quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.

The public can sign up for construction alerts and see additional project information at A hotline for the Kingsbury Grade Pavement Reconstruction Project has been set-up at 1-844-888-ROAD and messages will be returned within 24 hours.
