Johnson Lane closed for ditch cleaning

An excavator digs silt out of the drainage ditch along Johnson Lane on Thursday morning.

Johnson Lane is closed between Vicky and Clapham lanes today while workers muck out the drainage ditch next to the road.

Tons of mud and silt are being trucked out of the ditch after Sunday's flash floods inundated the northern Carson Valley community.

Mud in the ditch filled it to the top of either side of the culvert at Johnson Lane and Vicky.

Residents are still digging out after the flood.

Johnson Lane will be closed until 11 a.m. Thursday, according to the county.

Traffic is being detoured down Judy Street.
