Major Paving Begins as Part of U.S. 50 Repaving, Improvement Project

Posted: Updated:
From the Nevada Department of Transportation:

Major paving work is scheduled to start Sunday evening, July 20 on U.S. 50 in the Moundhouse area as part of a Nevada Department of Transportation project to enhance the highway.

Beginning the evening of July 20, weather dependent, single lane closures are scheduled to take place weekdays as the roadway surface is milled and repaved. One eastbound lane will be closed for paving from approximately 7 p.m. to 11 a.m. weekdays.  Paving will also take place on the westbound freeway between 1 p.m. and 5:30 a.m., with single lane closures. The paving work is expected to complete by mid-August, with the entire project scheduled for completion in the fall.
     
The paving is part of an approximately $6 million project by contractor Granite Construction to repave and improve 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 also 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.

Project construction is currently on schedule. Since the project’s start in June, enhancements to driveway approaches to the highway have been made, 14 additional roadside drainage inlets installed, electrical conduits placed for additional roadside lighting, a new frontage road graded and more.
