NDOT to Repair Concrete Roadway Barrier on U.S. 50 in East Carson City
CARSON CITY, Nev. – Single lane closures will be in place on U.S. 50 in east Carson City Saturday, Oct. 7 as the Nevada Department of Transportation repairs a section of roadway barrier wall damaged in a crash.
The left lanes of both eastbound and westbound U.S. 50 will be closed east of Drako Way near the Carson City landfill in east Carson City Saturday, Oct. 7 between approximately 6 am and 3 pm. Motorists are advised to anticipate up to 20-minute travel delays, particularly when traveling westbound from the Dayton area to Carson City.
Crews will replace an attenuator, or crash cushion, at the end of a roadway barrier wall. Often stationed at end of roadway barriers or guardrails, attenuators serve as a crash cushion to help reduce damage to drivers, vehicles and surrounding roadway structures during a crash.
