CARSON CITY, Nev. – This week, the Nevada Department of Transportation will install upgraded street lighting at north McCarran Boulevard and Socrates Drive/Evans Avenue.
Roadway shoulder closures will take place on McCarran Boulevard at the Socrates Drive/Evans Avenue intersection 7 a.m.-5p.m. Wednesday, March 13. Single lane closures will then take place at the intersection from 6 p.m. Thursday, March 14 -7 a.m. Friday, March 15, completing construction.
More modern and energy-efficient LED lighting will replace aging roadside lighting at the intersection. NDOT will upgrade four existing light heads and add six additional light heads for heightened brightness and visibility, including to further enhance visibility in pedestrian crosswalks.
