Work to begin on Centerville between Gardnerville and Ranchos

Staff Reports

On Nov. 19 and Nov. 20, roadway shoulder closures and periodic single lane closures (with traffic flagger alternating directions of traffic) will be in place on Centerville Lane near the Waterloo Lane intersections between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily as utility crews remove existing conduit and replace with overhead cable. The utility work is taking place to elevate utility lines in advance of an NDOT project, beginning Nov. 27.

Beginning Nov. 27 through late winter, Centerville Lane will be closed to through traffic between Douglas Avenue and the northern intersection with Waterloo Lane. Single-lane local access will remain open to businesses and residences in the area, but through traffic will need to detour via Waterloo Lane.

The project will widen roadway shoulders and restripe Centerville Lane to create sidewalk and bike lanes on both sides of the road from approximately one quarter mile southwest of U.S. 395 in downtown Gardnerville to the northern intersection with Waterloo Lane. As part of the project, the Centerville Lane bridge over the Cottonwood Slough will be widened to add bike lanes and sidewalk across the bridge. Roadway drainage improvements will also be made. The project will ultimately become part of future planned sidewalk and bike path improvements to connect the Gardnerville Ranchos residential area with area parks and community centers.

The approximately $1 million project by contractor Q&D Construction will improve Centerville Lane for pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as the as many as 5,000 drivers traveling the road daily. The road improvements are funded through local funds and the federally-funded Transportation Alternatives Program aimed at improving non-motorized mobility and other aspects of transportation.

State road updates are available at or by calling (775) 888-7000.

Construction schedule is subject to change based on weather and other factors.
