Two miles of new pavement coming up on Highway 50 East

Two miles of smooth pavement on its way to Highway 50 East.

The Nevada Department of Transportation has ordered the resurfacing of approximately two miles of U.S. 50 between Asphalt Drive and Nichols Lane in eastern Carson City.  The project scheduled for July, to resurface the aging highway surface, will run about $300,000.

Drivers should expect lane and brief intersection closures as the road is brought back up to normal.  Speed limits are expected to be lowered off and on throughout the project.  While one lane in each direction will always remain available, drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes during construction. The highway was last fully repaved in 2004.

Don’t fall victim to crooks…


The Carson City Sheriff’s Office has received multiple reports involving Craig’s List rental scams. Please consider these six steps to prevent being a victim of Craig’s List fraud:

Always Verify the Owner

Be very cautious about renting properties where the manager or owner is not willing to meet you in person.

If It Sounds Too Good to Be True, It Probably Is

When scanning through Craigslist listings, be cautious of apartments that seem too good to be true, as they probably are.

Never Give Personal Information Upfront

Another way scammers use Craigslist to try and entice potential victims is by convincing you it’s a really hot property, typically via e-mail, and insisting you “act fast” to reserve it.

Never Trust an E-mail

Unfortunately, scammers are hacking into the e-mail addresses of landlords and property owners on Craigslist and defrauding prospective tenants by posing as the real owners. The scam typically starts by answering your e-mail inquiry with a hard sell on why they need your personal information (or a deposit) before showing you the place.

Never Wire Money

Sending money by wire transfer is essentially the same thing as sending cash and once it has been sent, it’s nearly impossible to get it back.

6. Beware of the Middleman Scam

The “middleman scam” is when a scammer pretends a property is available for rent on Craigslist and claims to be handling, or managing, the place for the “real” owners. They’ll often claim the owner is out of the country and has trusted the place to them.

Additional information can be located on www.ic3.gov to report and avoiding being a victim of online fraud.

NDOT announces roadway improvements to Highway 50 heading east…

Information from Nevada Department of Transportation

The Nevada Department of Transportation recently approved a contract for a project this summer that will resurface approximately two miles of U.S. 50 between Asphalt Drive and Nichols Lane in eastern Carson City.

Contractor Sierra Nevada Construction, Inc. was selected for the approximately $300,000 project, scheduled for this July, to resurface the aging highway surface.

Drivers should anticipate lane and brief intersection closures when the road is resurfaced in July. Speed limits will intermittently be reduced as low as 35 mph through the work zone. While one lane in each direction will always remain available, drivers will be advised to use alternate nearby routes during construction. The construction schedule is subject to change.

Using the chip seal method, a 3/8-inch layer of new asphalt and roadway gravel will be placed and sealed with a top layer of oil. Often considered the best value for road maintenance dollar, the chip seal will restore roadway surface friction and aesthetics on the highway which was last fully repaved in 2004. It would cost as much as $3 million to fully repave the roadway including additional accessibility improvements.

SAFE WORK ZONE DRIVING TIPS
— Always buckle up.
— Use alternate routes through the work zone when possible
— Leave extra travel time when driving through the work zone
— Follow all posted work zone signage and speed limits
— Pay attention and minimize distractions.
— Keep a safe distance from cars ahead, traffic barriers, construction equipment and workers.
— Fines can be doubled for speeding in active road work zones
