State announces south county, tribal roadwork

Staff Reports

Single lane closures for crack sealing Highway 395 near Topaz Lake south of Gardnerville will continue through May 17.

Sections of the highway near the Holbrook junction be reduced to one lane weekdays from approximately 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Pilot cars will alternate directions of traffic through the work zone.

As part of continuing routine roadway maintenance, NDOT maintenance staff is filling cracking on approximately seven lane miles of the highway to provide a smoother driving surface and preserve the highway before roadway resurfacing planned for this summer. The road work schedule is subject to change.

Intermittent lane, roadway shoulder and sidewalk closures will take place through June, primarily during daytime hours of 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, as pedestrian safety and traffic calming improvements are installed on roadways in Washoe Tribe communities in Carson City and Gardnerville.

South Curry Street and Shoshone Street, Carson Colony
