SR 207 Kingsbury Grade

Approximately $15 million project to reconstruct and improve Kingsbury Grade. Visit the project website www.kingsburyproject.com.

U.S. 50 Moundhouse


Final paving work will take place during daytime hours as part of the finishing touches on the project.

Between October 21 and 25, lane closures will take place between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on U.S.50 between east Carson City and just east of the State Route 341 intersections as the final asphalt paving is placed on the roadway.

The paving is temperature sensitive, and will take place during daytime hours, weather dependent, to take advantage of the warmer temperatures. Once paving completes, project work will continue through the end of November with striping and shoulder, drainage and other final roadway improvements. Much of that final roadwork will take place on the roadside, with minimal traffic delays or lane closures.

General Project Information:

Approximately $6 million project to repave and make safety improvements to U.S. 50 from Arrowhead Drive (east Carson City) to one mile east of the State Route 341 (Virginia City) intersection. The repaving is scheduled for completion by end of summer with the entire project finished before winter 2014.

Mt. Rose Highway

Approximately $10 million project to repave and make guardrail, drainage and safety improvements on Mt. Rose Highway from Mt. Rose Junction (near Summit Sierra Mall) to Mt. Rose Summit. Project began in early June and is scheduled to end in fall 2015.

RUMBLE STRIPS - in areas near base of Mt. Rose Highway
ROCK SCALING/MESH on SLOPE - on westbound slope near summit

Construction Closures:
Single lane closures will take place in each direction. Construction in the residential area at the base of the highway will take place largely during nightime hours, with minimal daytime work. Road work will take place both night and day from the tree line up to the summit.

State Routes 445/447 Near Pyramid Lake

The Nevada Department of Transportation began chip sealing State Routes 445 and 447 near Pyramid lake in June to improve the highway surfaces.

State Route 445 Pyramid Highway is being resurfaced with a double chip seal between mile markers 9 and 42, from near Sunset Springs Lane/Egyptian Drive to approximately ten miles north of Sutclilffe. A chip seal will also be placed on State Route 447 from mileposts 35 to 49, halfway between Nixon and Gerlach.

The chip 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 aesthetics.

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 to drive at posted construction speed limits, or slower as necessary for conditions. The approximately $2.5 million project by contractor Seirra Nevada Construction is scheduled to complete in September.


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 top of the chip seals from mileposts 9-38. No work will be done August 23 - September 8. The crews will finish up the project with striping SR445 during the week of September 9-12--weather permitting.

Work on State Route 447 should be finished the week of August 18-22--weather permitting.



Carson City Freeway Phase 2B-2 from Fairview Drive U.S. 50/Spooner Summit
