Genoa, Nev. — Gardnerville is up for a $1.26 million grant to rebuild Industrial Way, which hasn’t been paved for more than 30 years, according to U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei. The request is subject for review by the Appropriations Committee and must be approved by the House of Representatives.
Road work on Mission Street to install the outlet piping for the flood basin under the parking lot of Gardnerville Station is the first step in finalizing a 10-year project that started in 2013 when the town took over the old gas station. The state will connect the other end of the basin as part of repaving Highway 395, due this year.
I’m checking with the Nevada Department of Transportation to see if there’s a firm date for work to start on that paving project between 1st Street in Minden and Waterloo Lane in Gardnerville.
I have .3 inches of rain in the gauge a mile north of Genoa. Fredericksburg resident Jeff Garvin said he saw .15 inches. From the traffic cameras it appears to have snowed lightly in the Pine Nuts. There aren’t any road controls to speak of, except on Highway 88 from Kirkwood to Red Lake Creek, according to the CHP.
The East Fork at Horseshoe Bend is back down to 12.94 feet, below the 13-foot action stage this morning. Up top, Ebbetts Pass actually added water to the snowpack climbing 1.2 inches to 75.7 inches, according to the snow telemetry.
The snow level is forecast to be around 5,000 feet until around 11 a.m. today when it rises to 6,000 feet. You might hear thunder as the high temperature struggles to get to 50 degrees. The wind will pick up out of the west at 5-10 mph.
