U.S. 50 Mound House Area Repaving and Improvement Project Started

Posted: Updated:
From the Nevada Department of Transportation:

Road work has started on U.S. 50 as part of a Nevada Department of Transportation project to repave and enhance the highway in the Mound House area.

The approximately $6 million project by contractor Granite Construction will repave and restripe U.S. 50 from Arrowhead Drive in east Carson City to one mile east of the State Route 341 (Virginia City) intersection. A half-mile frontage road will be constructed on the south side of U.S. 50 between Dorff Lane and Jeanette Drive, and an acceleration lane added for westbound turns from Alfonso Drive. Safety enhancements such as slope flattening and concrete barrier rail, as well as T intersection improvements at SR 341 and Flint Drive, will also be made.

The majority of the construction work will take place during nighttime hours, with construction-related single lane closures and delays to be expected. Construction is scheduled to complete in the fall.

“As the number of vehicles and development has grown, we’ve been widening and enhancing U.S. 50 east of Carson over the past years, and this project is part of our commitment to safety and mobility for everyone traveling U.S. 50,” NDOT Director Rudy Malfabon explained. “It’s vital that everyone on the road remembers to slow to appropriate speeds, to never drive impaired and to focus on the road and stay in your lane. We ask that drivers be extra careful when driving through construction work zones and we thank them in advance for their patience during construction.”
