“Welcome to Nevada” Monument Sign Installed Near Hoover Dam Bridge

Post Date:12/11/2019 3:36 PM

BOULDER CITY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) has installed a new $396,090 “Welcome to Nevada” monument sign along northbound Interstate 11 (U.S. Highway 93), just past the Hoover Dam Bridge, near the Arizona border. Las Vegas Paving was the general contractor.

The nearly 20-foot-tall by 8-foot-wide concrete plinth features Art Deco styling with a rounded top and ridged sides as an architectural nod to the nearby historical Hoover Dam. The colorful design also consists of a recessed state silhouette with bold white lettering and the Nevada crest for a distinctive gateway entry that will remain lit at night via a photovoltaic panel.

“Aesthetically engaging monuments like the new ‘Welcome to Nevada’ sign showcase the state’s unique heritage and identity,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “It also makes a significant first impression, stimulating tourism and attracting visitors while cultivating civic pride.”

The right travel lane will remain closed for roughly a quarter-mile northbound from U.S. Highway 93, through December 20, as crews continue wiring the lighting components. Work will occur from 5 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday. 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.
