CARSON CITY, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) -- Single lane closures will take place this week on alternate U.S. 50 in Silver Springs as part of Nevada Department of Transportation highway improvements.
Alternate U.S. 50, also known as U.S. 95, just north of the U.S. 50 intersection in Silver Springs will be reduced to a single lane Jan. 23 to Jan. 25 between 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Drivers should expect minor travel delays as traffic flaggers direct vehicle traffic through the single lane closure.
Motorists will continue to see brief, intermittent single lane closures on alternate U.S. 50 in the coming months.
The alternate U.S. 50 truck climbing lane just north of the U.S. 50 junction is being lengthened as part of an NDOT project to improve the U.S. 50 intersection and widen U.S. 50 from a two-lane to a four-lane divided highway between Silver Springs and Roys Road in Stagecoach.
A traffic roundabout will replace the existing flashing traffic signal at the U.S. 50 and alternate U.S. 50 junction in Silver Springs.
The concrete roundabout will make intersection travel safer and quicker, with free right turns between U.S. 50 and southern alternate U.S. 95.
Project updates are available at nevadadot.com or by calling (775) 888-7000.
