447 from mileposts 35 to 49, halfway between Nixon and Gerlach.
seal will help protect and prolong pavement life by repaving the roadway with
crushed aggregate rock and asphalt. Often considered the best valule for road
maintenance dollar, chip seals also restore roadway friction and
One-way traffic with traffic controls and pilot cars will be
in place to safely guide motorists through the road work zone, and delays of up
to 30 minutes are to be expected during daytime hours. Motorists are advised

conditions. The approximately $2.5 million project by contractor Seirra Nevada
Construction is scheduled to complete in August.
State Route 445: crews are finishing up the chip seal process at mileposts 9
-10. During the week of August 18-22, a top seal coating will be applied on
