Post Date:06/06/2017 3:41 PM

SEARCHLIGHT, NEV. - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) today closed the Southern Nevada Visitor’s Center rest area along northbound U.S. Highway 95, just south of Searchlight, due to a bee problem. Maintenance crews this afternoon discovered a hundred bees swarming the faucets, toilets, and other facilities, and immediately closed the center around 3 p.m. as a preventative safety measure.

“NDOT crews are working diligently to quickly resolve this issue,” says NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “It’s important to make this rest area safe and accessible once again for motorists.”
