Nipton Road Flood Repairs Finish, Reopens Today in Clark County
CLARK COUNTY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will reopen Nipton Road (State Route 164) to public traffic without restrictions today around 4 p.m., November 16, in southern Clark County. The department undertook a $3.45 million emergency repair to the storm damaged road, 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 improvements, which began September 4, consisted of placing new roadbed, asphalt paving and installing new precast concrete box culvert for enhanced storm water drainage. Las Vegas Paving was the contractor. (Average traffic along the roadway is less than 1,000 vehicles a day).
