NDOT: Ramp closures, lane shifts coming for Glendale Ave. reconstruction
RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
Starting Aug. 14, Interstate 580 ramp closures and surface street lane shifts will take place as part of the Nevada Department of Transportation's Glendale Avenue reconstruction project.
The following changes are scheduled to start early on the morning of Aug. 14:
• August 14 through late August: The southbound on-ramp and both the northbound on and off-ramp between I-580 and Glendale Avenue/Second Street will close 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The ramp closures allow crews to reconstruct Second Street in the area. Marked detours will be available via Mill Street and Rock Boulevard.
• August 14 through fall: Major roadway reconstruction will take place on Second Street/Glendale Avenue between Kietzke Lane and Galletti Way. The road will remain open to traffic, but both directions of traffic will first be shifted to the north side through the road work zone as crews excavate approximately 16 inches of road surface and then rebuild and repave for a smoother roadway. Business and residential access will remain available.
• The south side of Rock Boulevard, currently closed to through traffic from Glendale Avenue to just north of Freeport Boulevard, is scheduled to reopen in early September. The road closure helped fast-track construction of a more durable concrete roadway surface at the heavily-traveled intersection.
• Roadway reconstruction will also continue on Glendale Avenue between Rock and east McCarran boulevards. Motorists are advised to reduce speeds and follow all road work signage.
According to NDOT, construction on the project will soon be 50 percent complete, with more than 2,000 yards of new concrete poured to construct new concrete surfaces on the north side of the Rock Boulevard and Galletti Way intersections.
