Highway work will continue in the median of Highway 395 between Muller Lane and Carson City between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. There’s a survey crew working in the median and sometimes they’re closing a lane. Watch out for the orange signs reducing the speed limit to 55 mph.

The Highway fire is out, but a check of the Sierra Front Interagency Dispatch Center call log reveals there’s lots of places where a fire could have started and didn’t, including a smoldering stump near Spooner Summit on Friday afternoon.
