Repair Contract Awarded for Flood Damaged Nipton Road in Clark County

Post Date:08/31/2018 12:41 PM

CLARK COUNTY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) yesterday awarded a $3.45 million emergency contract to Las Vegas Paving to repair storm damaged Nipton Road (State Route 164), which closed on August 15 following flash flooding. A storm washed away portions of the east-west rural highway between Mile Markers 2 and 6.

The two-lane 18.6-mile-long roadway connects U.S. Highway 95 in southern Clark County, near Searchlight, to Nipton, California. The planned improvements, starting September 4, call for placing new roadbed, asphalt paving and installing new precast concrete box culvert for enhanced storm water drainage.

The road will remain closed to through traffic while construction work occurs. Nipton Road sees less than 1,000 vehicles a day. Repairs are expected to finish in early November. For the latest state highway conditions, visit or call 511 before driving.
