NDOT ANNOUNCES LANE CLOSURES FOR SINKHOLE REPAIR ON U.S. 50 NEAR ZEPHYR COVE
The Nevada Department of Transportation is advising motorists to anticipate periodic lane closures on westbound U.S. 50 near Zephyr Cove, Tahoe through coming 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 currently conducting manual and video investigation underneath the roadway. This afternoon, department roadway maintenance forces 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.
