Genoa, Nev. — Highway 88 should be open this morning after the county started installation of box culverts where it crosses Cottonwood Slough just south of Minden. The closure will be back next weekend to wrap up the project.


This week will see overnight roadwork 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Highway 50 from Stateline to Lake Parkway. Centerville between Highway 88 and Foothill is closed this week as paving continues.
