I-580 Reconstruction Project

The approximately $12.1 million project by contractor Q & D Construction will 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 Mill Street and Villanova Drive on I-580 southbound. Other areas of existing roadway concrete that are not replaced will be resurfaced on both directions of the interstate. 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 expected to complete in spring 2016, providing an enhanced concrete southbound I-580 roadway surface. More than 140,000 vehicles travel the stretch of I-580 daily.

Nighttime construction-related lane closures will take place Sunday through Thursday evenings. In late spring, major roadway rehabilitation will begin, with southbound traffic routed to northbound interstate lanes as repairs are made. Three interstate lanes will remain open in each direction. The Glendale Avenue on-ramp to southbound I-580 will also be closed during construction, with intermittent closures of the Mill Street and Plumb Lane off and on-ramps.

U.S. 395 Concrete Barrier Repair

The Nevada Department of Transportation will begin safety repairs to replace median concrete barrier rail on U.S. 395 near Oddie Boulevard in northern Reno. The barrier rail was damaged after being struck by a vehicle.

Beginning the evening of July 6 through early August, the inside left lane will be closed on both northbound and southbound U.S. 395 between North McCarran Boulevard and the spaghetti bowl. Two lanes will remain open in each direction of the interstate during daytime hours. During overnight hours of 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., traffic may be further reduced to one lane in each direction. In addition, the North McCarran Blvd. on-ramp to U.S. 395 southbound will be closed during construction. Travel delays are to be expected. The repair work is scheduled to complete by early August.

The approximately $800,000 project by Granite Construction will replace more than a half mile of concrete median barrier rail on U.S. 395 between the Reno spaghetti bowl and Oddie Boulevard, including the damaged section. The new barrier rail will be ten inches taller than the previous 32-inch barrier. Six inches of existing asphalt roadway foundation beneath the barrier rail will also be replaced with a new concrete foundation.

The repairs are being made just north of NDOT's existing Southbound I-580 Reconstruction Project, and motorists are reminded to travel safely and allow extra time while traveling through both road work zones.
