S.R. 160 Road Improvements, Travel Delays Through June 19 in Nye County
NYE COUNTY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will be making roadway improvements along a 10-mile-long stretch of State Route 160, also known as the Pahrump Valley Highway, through June 19 in Nye County. Maintenance crews are applying a double chip seal to the north and southbound travel lanes between Mile Markers 27 and 37, northwest of Pahrump. Work will occur from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily between June 11-12 and June 18-19. A pilot car will safely guide motorists through the work zone. Motorists, however, can expect up to 10-minute-long travel delays.
“A chip seal consists of a fine gravel and thin liquid asphalt coating over existing pavement,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “It’s a cost-effective pavement preservation solution that produces a smoother, more durable and longer lasting roadway.”
Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. NDOT works with Waze to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
