NDOT Begins Installation of New Gateway Welcome Monument Sign in Crystal Bay
CARSON CITY, Nev. – Single lane closures will be in place on State Route 28 in Crystal Bay, Tahoe on Thursday, Nov. 14 as the Nevada Department of Transportation installs a new “Welcome to Nevada” monument.
Single lane closures will take place between 9a.m.-4p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14 on State Route 28 near the intersection of Stateline Road in Crystal Bay. Drivers should anticipate moderate travel delays as traffic flaggers and pilot cars alternate both directions of traffic through the work zone.
Monuments have also been installed on U.S. 395 near Topaz Lake and Bordertown earlier this fall. Constructed of stainless and weathering steel with natural rock or concrete bases, each gateway monument features the Nevada state name, state silhouette and “Battle Born” motto. The monuments consist of slightly different designs expressing the unique surroundings of the natural environment. The Crystal Bay monument design replicates the heavy timber and stone construction popular in the area. With the goal of creating a notable entry and first impression for visitors, as well as residents returning across state lines, such landscape and aesthetics signage can enhance and define roadway corridors, reflect the heritage and culture of communities and further an area’s tourism and economic development potential.
