The Nevada Department of Transportation says there will be periodic lane closures on westbound U.S. 50 near Zephyr Cove for a few weeks as a roadway sinkhole is repaired. 

The slow lane of westbound U.S. 50 near Zephyr Cove Resort is currently closed after an approximately three-foot hole appeared in the roadway Friday, Aug. 11, potentially created by erosion of a storm drain.

NDOT is conducting manual and video investigation underneath the roadway. Department roadway maintenance are discussing a plan to temporarily fill and repave the hole with roadway base and paving materials with the goal of reopening the lane for weekend travel. 

Future lane and/or roadway closures are possible if more extensive repairs are needed.
