U.S. Highway 6 Road Restrictions, Upgrade Begins Sept. 10 in Nye County
NYE COUNTY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will upgrade a 24-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 6 between Mileposts 2 and 26 in Nye County from September 10 through September 26. Chip seal pavement improvements will take place from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily, Monday through Thursday. A pilot car will safely escort motorists through the work zone whose speed limit will be reduced to 35-m.p.h. Construction will be a moving operation. Motorists could experience travel delays.
“We are applying layers of fresh oil and gravel that will prevent further roadway cracking and deterioration for a smoother, safer driving experience,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “It’s a cost-effective maintenance solution that extends the highway’s lifecycle.”
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.
