Lane closures on Kingsbury through July 31

Staff Reports

Single-lane closures will take place on the Carson Valley side of Kingsbury Grade through July 31 as the Nevada Department of Transportation clears roadside slopes.

Small sections of Kingsbury Grade will be reduced to one lane from approximately 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays between Daggett Summit and Foothill Road.

Motorists are advised to anticipate minor travel delays as traffic flaggers and pilot cars alternate directions of travel through localized road work zones. The road work schedule is subject to change.

As part of continuing roadway maintenance, transportation workers are removing roadside dirt and rocks, which have loosened from roadside slopes, before a scheduled roadway resurfacing later this summer.

State road updates are available by visiting or dialing 775-888-7000.

Single-lane closures and minor travel delays will take place on highways 208 and 824 in the Wellington and Smith areas of Lyon County. Work began Monday to reseal the roadway surface.

From 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., one-way traffic with pilot cars will be in place on the following routes and dates as the roadway surface is resealed:

Highway 208 between Wellington and Smith (approximately mileposts 2 to 9) today and Friday.

Highway 824 from Smith to west of the intersection of Delphi Way near the Rosaschi Air Park Monday and Tuesday.

Brief lane closures will then take place on the routes Aug. 1-7 as new roadway striping is placed.

One-way traffic with traffic controls and pilot cars will be in place to safely guide motorists through the road work zones, with travel delays of up to 20 minutes.

Motorists are advised to drive at posted work zone speed limits, or slower as necessary for conditions.
