Section of Minister Road Near Yerington to Temporarily Close

Post Date:01/03/2020 10:59 AM
A segment of Minister Road south of Yerington will close through early summer as the Nevada Department of Transportation replaces an aging bridge.
The Minister Road bridge over the east Walker River will close Jan. 6 and remain closed through early summer as NDOT replaces the aging bridge. Access to the Walker River State Recreation Area is available through East Walker Road from State Route 208.
The bridge was originally constructed in 1950 using flatbed railroad cars as the base and will be replaced by a modern single-span bridge structure. New bridge abutments will be installed and rock will also be placed in the waterway to reduce future erosion.
The $2 million project by MKD Construction, Inc. is part of NDOT’s proactive bridge inspection and renovation process that has helped lead Nevada bridges to be named some of the nation’s best.
State highway information is available at or by calling (775) 888-7000.
