Established as the Nevada Department of Highways on March 23, 1917, our mission was to surface the rutted dirt paths that served as the road network of the time.

Fast forward a century and take a trip down memory lane. Enjoy amazing historical Nevada transportation photos and videos that showcase many of the important projects and milestones that have kept Nevadans safe and connected for the past 100 years.  And enjoy our new eBook with a decade-by-decade history of progression of state transportation.
