NDOT Opens Bids On Major Upcoming I-580 Road Project

Posted: Updated:
From the Nevada Department of Transportation:

An upcoming Nevada Department of Transportation project to replace aging concrete on Interstate 580 south of the Reno Spaghetti Bowl has reached an important milestone with the recent opening of construction contract bids.

Q & D Construction’s approximately $12.1 million bid was named as the apparent low bid for the project. Final bid approval and contract execution will take place in future weeks, with the contract pending ultimate approval by the state transportation board.

The project is scheduled to improve southbound I-580/U.S. 395 from Glendale Avenue to Moana Lane. Aging concrete roadway slabs last constructed more than 30 years ago will be replaced between Glendale Avenue and Villanova Drive on I-580 southbound. Meanwhile, between Villanova Drive and Moana Lane, existing concrete on the southbound interstate will be resurfaced.  Some lanes on I-580 northbound will also be resurfaced. In addition, select bridges will be seismically retrofitted and interchange crossings below the freeway will receive Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility enhancements. The project is projected to begin this fall with initial bridge work that will have minor impacts to traffic. Major work will begin in spring 2015, with traffic routed to the opposite side of the freeway as repairs are made.  The project is expected to complete in fall 2015, providing a new concrete southbound I-580 roadway surface projected to last 30 years or more.

NDOT’s previous Northbound U.S. 395 (I-580) Improvement Project, completed five months ahead of schedule in 2011, added auxiliary lanes and improved the northbound section of interstate to reduce commute times and traffic safety between Moana Lane and the Spaghetti Bowl. This upcoming project on the southbound interstate will not make any changes to interstate lanes previously improved by the northbound U.S. 395 (I-580) project. More than 140,000 vehicles travel the stretch of I-580 daily.

As the project begins this fall, further project details will be available at www.nevadadot.com or by dialing (775) 888-7000.
