Southern Nevada Visitors Center Rest Area Reopens Following Bee Problem

Post Date:06/27/2017 1:22 PM

SEARCHLIGHT, NEV. - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) yesterday afternoon reopened the Southern Nevada Visitor’s Center rest area along northbound U.S. Highway 95, just south of Searchlight. The facility had been closed since June 6 due to hundreds of bees swarming the fawcets, toilets, and other facilities.

“NDOT crews have since remedied the bee problem,” says NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “Apparently, the bees were just passing through, using the rest area like everyone else, drawn to the water source. The facility, once again, is safe and accessible for motorists.”
