NDOT To Activate Permanent Traffic Signal at USA Parkway and Electric Avenue

CARSON CITY, Nev. – Beginning this weekend, drivers will see a permanent traffic signal activated at USA Parkway and Electric Avenue as part of Nevada Department of Transportation improvements for smoother travel.

Beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7 through approximately 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, drivers will see intermittent single lane closures on USA Parkway at Electric Avenue as the traffic signal heads are installed and activated.

Drivers should be attentive and prepared to stop at the new signal. Motorists are advised to drive safely and attentively, yielding and following all traffic guidance from roadway signage and signals. Once activated, maintenance and operation of the signal will be under the purview of Storey County.

In addition to the new four-way signal, two left turn lanes have been installed from southbound USA Parkway to eastbound Electric Avenue. A dedicated merge lane has also been constructed allowing traffic to more safely merge from Electric Avenue onto northbound USA Parkway. The signal and turn lanes will allow for designated and safer turns for heavy commute traffic turning across USA Parkway to warehouse and manufacturing centers on Electric Avenue. Roadway lighting has also been improved.

In April, NDOT installed two temporary traffic signals at USA Parkway and Waltham Way, as well as the northbound USA Parkway intersection with the I-80 westbound off-ramp. Through the coming year, the temporary traffic signals will be removed and a permanent signal installed at the northbound USA Parkway intersection with the I-80 westbound off-ramp, providing designated turns for traffic turning from I-80 westbound to USA Parkway and reducing the potential of traffic back-ups on to the interstate.

State road project information is available at or by dialing (775) 888-7000.
