Lane closures on U.S. 50 in Carson City start Monday
Drivers from all over the Carson City area have been complaining that Highway 50 East is deteriorating at a rather fast clip. And the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) couldn’t agree more. They’ve sworn to do a complete overhaul on a stretch of pavement from Nichols Lane to Arrowhead Drive. The construction’s “partial closures” will begin in eastern Carson City on Monday, June 28th and Tuesday June 29th as NDOT begins patching the highway surface.
NDOT reports that single lane closures on East Highway 50 will run from Nichols Lane to Arrowhead Drive on Monday from 5pm to midnight and on Tuesday from midnight to 6am and, later that day, 5pm to midnight. Speed limits will be reduced and motorists are advised to follow all road work zone signage. Drivers can expect travel delays of up to 15 minutes or less.
The road patching will reinforce the roadway in advance of a much larger project to fully resurface the highway. In August, drivers will see additional and more extensive lane closures as approximately two miles of U.S. 50 between Asphalt Drive and Nichols Lane is resurfaced.
