NDOT Announces U.S. 95A / SR 339 Lane Closures in Yerington
CARSON CITY, Nev. – Daytime lane closures will take place through late June on U.S. 95A and State Route 339 in the Yerington area as the Nevada Department of Transportation resurfaces the roadways.
- Single lane closures will take place on Alternate U.S. 95 between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. weekdays June 12 through 22 from the State Route 339 junction to Wabuska as the road is chip sealed.
- Single lane closures will take place on SR 339 between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. daily June 25 through 28 from the junction with U.S. 95 Alternate to approximately four miles south through the Mason area as the road is chip sealed.
One-way traffic with traffic flaggers and pilot cars will be in place to safely guide motorists through the road work zones, with travel delays of up to 20 minutes to be expected during daytime hours. Motorists are advised to drive at posted construction speed limits, or slower as necessary for conditions. All lanes will be open during overnight hours. The road work schedule is weather dependent.
The chip seal will help protect and prolong pavement life by repaving the roadway with crushed aggregate rock and asphalt. Often considered the best value for road maintenance dollar, chip seals also restore roadway friction and aesthetics.
SAFE WORK ZONE DRIVING TIPS
∙ Always buckle up.
∙ Pay attention. Normal speed limits may be reduced, traffic lanes may be changed and people and vehicles may be working near the road.
∙ Always slow to posted work zone speed limits.
