Franktown Road Repaving Rescheduled

Posted: Updated:

Some improvements have been made to Franktown road but repaving will wait until late summer.

Franktown Road (State Route 877) in Washoe Valley was in need of repairs and repaving following winter flooding. 

Construction began in May. The Nevada Department of Transportation says that they have since repaired roadside drainage and repaved driveway approaches connecting to the road. Repaving is the next step. 

NDOT says repaving has been postponed to late in the summer to avoid impacting other regional construction and repair efforts. 

Single lane closures have been in effect through the course of this construction. Now, while the repaving has been postponed, NDOT says the road construction-related lane closures will be lifted, beginning Friday June 9th,  until that next step begins. 

A&K Earthmovers Inc are helping with the construction. They say as much as 3 inches from the roadway surface will be removed and replaced with new asphalt, creating a roadway surface that should last 12 to 15 years. The road was last fully repaved in 1996 and was resealed in 2010 and 2015. 

Earlier in the summer, Channel 2 News video journalist Jaimie Hays spoke with local residents still recovering from the Little Valley Fire that were concerned about the construction's impact. You can watch that story here
