Nipton Road Upgrades, Traffic Delays March 12-April 1 in Clark County
CLARK COUNTY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will be crack sealing a nearly 10-mile-stretch of State Route 164, also known as Nipton Road, from March 13 through April 1 in southwest Clark County. The two-lane rural highway connects U.S. Highway 95, near Searchlight, to Nipton, California.
Crews will be crack filling pavement with an asphalt emulsion to reduce water infiltration and reinforce the roadbed, working in two-mile-long segments from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. daily, Monday through Thursday. A flagging and pilot car operation will safely chaperone vehicles through the construction work zone. Motorists can expect minor travel delays.
“Crack filling prevents further roadway deterioration for a smoother, safer driving experience,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “It’s a cost-effective maintenance solution that extends the roadway’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.
