CARSON CITY, Nev. – Overnight lane closures will take place on U.S. 395 north of the Cold Springs interchange this week as the Nevada Department of Transportation installs roadway sensors to gather data on road usage. Overnight single lane closures will take place on both directions of U.S. 395 north of White Lake Parkway Tuesday, June 26 through Thursday, June 28 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly. Minor travel delays should be anticipated. Drivers are reminded to travel safely and follow reduced speed limits through the work zone. The approximately $100,000 project by PAR Electric Contractors, Inc. will embed vehicle classification sensors into the freeway to automatically gather anonymous data on traffic counts and vehicle types. NDOT utilizes the data to plan for future transportation needs and construct appropriate, long-lasting pavements for the average type and weight of vehicles on the road. State road project information is available at nevadadot.com or by dialing (775) 888-7000.

The Nevada Department of Transportation announced that work on State Route 28 shared-used path from the southern end of Incline Village to three miles south of Sand Harbor State Park will be on hold during the entire Fourth of July holiday week, July 2-6 www.nevadadot.com/SR28. NDOT and Granite Construction crews may conduct minor work along the path if conditions allow; however, traffic control will not be in effect. To ensure safety while the pathway is under construction, it will remain closed to the public. The Memorial Point parking lot and restroom will also remain closed. Recreationists are encouraged to access beaches and trails through designated recreation and parking areas off of the roadside. Leading up to the holiday as traffic flow allows, work will occur through Friday, June 29. Motorists should anticipate delays of 20 to 30 minutes with one-lane flagger-controlled closures in multiple locations. After the holiday week, the schedule will resume Sunday night through Friday afternoon with single lane 24-hour flagger-controlled closures. With potential travel delays, drivers are encouraged to allow for extra time to reach their destination, and to be aware of vehicle fueling/charging stations before entering work zones. The multi-year project will build a three-plus mile shared-use path from the southern end of Incline Village to Sand Harbor State Park. Three new parking areas near the Ponderosa Ranch and Tunnel Creek Café will also provide safer parking options. More than 2.5 million vehicles a year travel on State Route 28, mixing with as many as 2,000 pedestrians and bicyclists who park and recreate near the roadside on peak days, creating safety and accessibility concerns on the mountain highway. The additional pathway and parking areas will enhance safety and mobility for everyone on the roadway. Project information is available at www.nevadadot.com/SR28 or by calling (775) 888-7000.

Brace yourselves for Car-nado. That’s the name Nevada Department of Transportation officials coined for a whirlwind of long-term closures set to start Halloween weekend for the $1 billion widening of the Spaghetti Bowl interchange in downtown Las Vegas known as Project Neon. The Interstate 15 southbound and northbound ramps connecting to northbound U.S. Highway 95 will be closed from 10 p.m. Oct. 26 until late February. Additionally, the I-15 ramps to Martin Luther King Boulevard will be closed during the same time frame. The lengthy closures are needed so that crews can demolish a 22-year-old, two-lane bridge over Martin Luther King Boulevard that currently connects northbound I-15 to northbound U.S. Highway 95. The bridge will be rebuilt just north of its current location, making room for a flyover ramp that will be designated for high-occupancy vehicles. Courtesy: NDOT.

In January, NDOT broke ground on a $78 million dollar widening and upgrade to a six-mile-long stretch of U.S. Highway 95 between Ann and Kyle Canyon roads in northwest Las Vegas. The project will relieve congestion, improve efficiency and enhance safety, while providing capacity for future growth. Currently, over 52,000 vehicles daily travel through the corridor; however, traffic is expected to more than double over the next two decades. The project calls for expanding the highway from four to six lanes from Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road, constructing carpool access ramps at Elkhorn Road and building a diverging diamond interchange at Kyle Canyon Road. Diverging Diamond Interchanges are a much more efficient movement of vehicles as opposed to ramps where you need to slow and then speed back up to make a freeway-to-freeway connection. Although still new to Nevada, they don’t require a lot of right-of-way acquisition, saving taxpayers money since they temporarily shift traffic to the left side of the road, thereby keeping motorists moving through two pairs of unimpeded left turns onto and off the freeway. The project additionally calls for wrong way driver alert signs that have been proven to reduce wrong-way events by 38 percent. There nearly 280 wrong-way driver crashes on Nevada freeways from 2005 to 2015, resulting in 41 fatalities and 125 injuries. Other enhancements entail placing decorative rock, erecting signage and lighting, and installing nearly nine miles of barrier rail. Additionally, the project will place concrete box storm drainage and open channel between the Centennial Bowl and Grand Teton Drive. Ultimately, the improvements will require moving enough dirt to fill 304 Olympic-sized swimming pools, placing enough concrete to pave 2,000 driveways, and using enough steel to build 100 Sherman tanks. Construction will finish in the fall of 2019.

On January 10, 2012, Federal Highway Administrator Victor Mendez joined officials from the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) as they put a new bridge in place on the I-15 West Mesquite Interchange with new technologies that allowed for faster completion of the project, resulting in less congestion for travelers. Officials from more than 24 State Departments of Transportation viewed the demonstration to learn how the advancements could benefit their States. The bridge was replaced in 56 hours. This time-lapse footage shows some of the replacement work. (This footage was created by NDOT, and posted with permission from NDOT.)

I audit the DMV and Nevada Department of Transportation in Carson City, Nevada. The DMV fails and calls the cops, which you see at the end of the video with two officers showing up. NDOT passes and so does the Capital City Police and Nevada Highway Patrol. The officers didn't try to issue orders, didn't ask for ID, and dropped the issue when I told them I wouldn't answer personal questions. Even respect my right to open carry without making it an issue. Good on them! They also get a quick cap on what we do and why. Spent a total of an hour and a half across both locations and cut down for viewing. You might find it boring, but this is what we want as auditors!

CARSON CITY, Nev. –The Nevada Department of Transportation is inviting community members to take part in a free fun walk, run and ride celebrating the upcoming opening of the last leg of the Interstate 580 Carson City Freeway. The new section of freeway is scheduled to open in August. Before it opens to vehicle traffic, community members are invited to walk, bicycle or run the new roadway Saturday, July 22 between 9 a.m. and noon. A brief welcome ceremony featuring NDOT, federal and local representatives will take place at 9 a.m., but participants can arrive any time between 9 and 11:30 a.m. for a self-paced walk, bike or run of the new freeway. Event attendees simply turn south onto the new freeway from southbound I-580 or Fairview Drive and follow event signs to the parking area located on the future freeway. Pet owners are discouraged from bringing animals, excluding certified assistance animals. Prior to construction of I-580, Nevada was one of only a few states without an interstate connecting to the capital city. The new segment of freeway marks completion of I-580 linking Reno and Carson City. Since breaking ground in 2000, construction of the approximately ten-mile I-580 Carson City Freeway has been phased to best utilize available funding. Nearly six million cubic yards of earth were moved, 18 million pounds of reinforcing steel installed and more than $200 million in federal, state and local transportation funds dedicated to construct the freeway between Lakeview Hill in north Carson City and the U.S. 50 junction in the southern part of the city. In December 2015, the freeway was officially dedicated as the Carson City Deputy Sheriff Carl Howell Memorial Freeway. Aimed at increasing traffic mobility and safety with an interstate bypass to help remove through-traffic congestion from downtown Carson City, an estimated 43,000 vehicles daily are projected to use the new southern section of freeway by 2035. The new intersection of the Carson City Freeway and U.S. 50 at South Carson Street will be a signalized intersection. NDOT has future plans to build a full interchange and bridge carrying Carson City Freeway traffic over South Carson Street should funding become available. “Our goal is to help keep Nevada safe and connected,” NDOT Director Rudy Malfabon explained. “And the Carson City Freeway not only helps connect our capital city, it will further connect the entire region. The community has supported us throughout construction of the freeway, and it is with pride that we open the last leg of the Carson City Freeway to the Carson City community and the entire state.” “The opening of the last leg of the I-580 freeway is a long-awaited turning point for the Carson City community and one which we have been anticipating and preparing for over several decades,” Carson City Mayor Robert Crowell said. “First conceived in the 1960s, it has now become a reality. In addition to being able to travel from Carson City to the Bay Area with no stop lights, it will allow our community the ability to showcase our City as the Capital of the great State of Nevada. We share in the pride expressed by NDOT Director Malfabon and thank NDOT for its perseverance and dedication in completing this much-needed addition to our community, region and state.” Further information is available at www.ccfreeway.com or by dialing (775) 888-7000.

In Northern Nevada, we completed several important projects, including reconstruction of I-580 in Reno, and Washoe Valley as well as the extension of the westbound U.S. 50 Cave Rock tunnel in Lake Tahoe. On I-80 east of Elko, we installed two safety crossings to reduce the chance of vehicle and deer collisions. We broke ground on the SR 28 Shared-Use Path and Safety/Stormwater enhancements project in Tahoe and are extending the USA Parkway to link U.S. 50 and I-80 in Storey and Lyon counties. And we’ll open the last leg of the Carson City Freeway from Fairview Drive to the U.S. 50/South Carson Street to traffic next year. Project NEON will widen a section of I-15 between Sahara Avenue and the Las Vegas Spaghetti Bowl greatly improving safety and mobility. The U.S. 95 Northwest Corridor Improvements Project is in full swing including the construction of the 60 foot high Centennial Bowl flyover bridge that will connect the westbound 215 beltway to the southbound 95. Other important projects include the construction of the first phase of Interstate 11 that will eventually connect Las Vegas to Phoenix and the widening of State Route 160 or Blue Diamond Road near Mountain Springs. ) Our updated Strategic Highway Safety Plan and Zero Fatalities program continue to focus on changing dangerous driving behaviors to save lives on our Nevada roadways. Other important NDOT programs include the development of our freight plan that is paving the way for future freight and transportation enhancements, and, our State Farm sponsored Freeway Service Patrol program and Traffic Incident Management Coalition help keep roads clear in Vegas and Reno. And this year through careful budgeting, planning and having projects “ready-to-go, NDOT brought home an additional 20 million dollars in federal transportation spending authority for Nevada road projects. To help manage and maintain Stormwater assets, 43,000 pipes, 14,000 drop inlets, 4,000 manholes, and 600 channels to date have been mapped and uploaded to the GIS map for data sharing, maintenance scheduling and future planning. Stormwater enhancements continue on all projects including best management practices on the Carson City Freeway, Centennial Bowl and USA Parkway projects, innovative technologies in the Lake Tahoe area, and improving NDOT maintenance yards statewide. The new Stormwater Program, “Love NV Waters,” has been connecting with the public and NDOT team members in the newsletter and on social media. NDOT Stormwater is committed to being a leader in stormwater management and preserving Nevada’s water quality for future generations.

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) recently broke ground on a nearly $34 million widening of Interstate 15 between Craig Road and Speedway Boulevard in North Las Vegas. The ceremony took place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, as part of our Race to Progress. The project will expand a 5-mile-long stretch of highway from four to six travel lanes using existing right-of-way, plus install new lighting, signage and landscaping. Other work calls for drainage improvements as well as widening and seismic upgrades to four overpass structures at Range Road and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. The project will improve safety and mobility through the northern Interstate 15 corridor, greatly reducing travel times and congestion. It will also enhance traffic flows entering and exiting the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which hosts over 1,400 events annually, including NASCAR weekend and the Electric Daisy Carnival that contributes $1.3 billion to the local economy. Currently, this five mile section of interstate sees 41,600 vehicles daily; however, traffic is expected to increase 71 percent by 2033. The 18-month-long undertaking will see up to 100 workers onsite during the peak of activity, with anticipated completion in early 2018.

The Nevada Department of Transportation and the RTC continue to improve transportation in the North Valleys. NDOT will be activating freeway ramp meters and wrong way driver signs on U.S. 395 in the North Valleys. Ramp meters are essentially traffic signals placed at the top of freeway ramps with red and green lights. Drivers stop at the red light and then enter the freeway when the light turns green. By more evenly metering the flow of traffic merging onto the freeway, ramp meters can make travel on the freeways safer and smoother. NDOT also posts Wrong Way signs on all freeway ramps to help stop drivers entering the freeway in the wrong direction. In the North Valleys, NDOT is activating a first-in-the-state radar detection system which will light up those wrong-way signs and notify emergency responders if a vehicle enters U.S. 395 in the wrong direction. Drivers will see the ramp meters and wrong-way signs activated in the coming months, along with more electronic freeway signs and traffic cameras to give freeway travel times and updates. And there are more improvements to come. NDOT will widen a section of U.S. 395 between Lemmon Drive and north McCarran Boulevard in the North Valleys over the coming years.

In late March, the Nevada Department of Transportation began restricting U.S. Highway 95 to two travel lanes in each direction between Rancho Drive and the Spaghetti Bowl interchange in downtown Las Vegas. The 24/7 closures will remain in place for 10 months or through the end of 2017. The improvements are related to Project Neon – a nearly $1 billion 3.7-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue. Contractors are building an 81-foot-tall, ½-mile-foot-long carpool flyover structure linking U.S. 95 with I-15. The 18-span two-lane precast concrete bridge will help create 22 contiguous miles of carpool lanes between U.S. 95 and I-15. Additionally, crews will redo one mile of U.S. Highway 95 concrete pavement that was last improved in 1992. The multi-month improvements are being nicknamed, “The Big Squeeze,” due to the lane narrowing pinch and merge movements. Roughly 220,000 vehicles travel the impacted stretch of U.S. 95 daily. However, surface streets can also be used to bypass traffic. For southbound traffic, for example, Valley View Boulevard, Decatur Boulevard, and Rancho Drive are recommended alternatives; northbound traffic can either take Las Vegas Boulevard or Eastern Avenue. The department is also implementing a “zipper merge” where cars alternate turns passing into the through lane of traffic. A zipper merge is safer and 40 percent faster than early merging with less anxiety and frustration. Additionally, the department is communicating and strategizing with FAST (Freeway and Arterial System of Transportation) about digital sign notifications as well as ramp and signal timing during the 300-day closures. It will closely monitor eight corridors with 70 signals through 35 freeway and arterial cameras, making real time adjustments as necessary, depending upon the traffic ebb and flow. Downtown Las Vegas access will remain unaffected. And the Interstate 15 northbound to U.S. Highway 95 northbound ramp exit to Rancho Drive will remain open. The department recommends that people use its new Project Neon mobile phone and tablet app for use with Apple and Android products. The free downloadable app features an interactive project map displaying detailed traffic closures and construction activity. It also features project facts, photos, videos, and schedule milestones as well as helpful links, contact information and social media activity. The app additionally offers real time push notifications for major project activities and traffic impacts. It’s NDOT’s first mobile app and a significant step toward keeping the public informed about Project Neon.

Kim Smith “Winter 2017 brought a lot of water to Nevada…and there’s more to come with the Spring run-off. Now it’s water that’s much needed, but it’s also water that needs to be managed safely.” “I’m Kim Smith with the Nevada Department of Transportation at the Lahontan Reservoir.” Rusty D. Jardine, Esq. General Manager & General Counsel Truckee-Carson Irrigation District, Fallon “The story grew for us in January when we started to see an incredible flow in the Carson River. During that period of time, a short period of time, we saw an increase in the Lahontan … of 60 – 70 thousand acre feet. As you look behind me you see a reservoir that contains about 300,000 acre feet…..and when you see that kind of increase at a very short time, that sent up all of the flares.” With Lahontan Reservoir on the rise, preparation to safely release water began…below the Lahontan Dam is a diversion dam that divides into three sources that provide for water to be distributed throughout the valley; the Carson River channel, the T-line canal and the V-line, which is the foremost carrying canal in the system. Rusty “we’re sending the water through the V-line out a wier structure we created, an emergency structure, put together in a very short time, which allows diversion from the V-line across open terrain, across the desert, off out into the southern part of Lahontan Valley to the area of U.S. 95, the highway…and it was at that point that the Department of Transportation came to our aide and provided for massive oversized culverts.” David Gaskin, P.E. NDOT Deputy Director “What we’ve done is install a number of large culverts – we have highway 95 south on the south end of town and we have highway 50 east – and the water has to get under those highways in order to get where it needs to go and prevent the flooding..we’ve had a great collaboration with all the state, local and federal government agencies as well as the local citizens we have farmers and ranchers who have used their own equipment to dig ditches and build berms. The Governor and toured and saw the situation personally and NDOT has been really involved in this.” Charles Wolf, P.E. NDOT Chief Hydraulic Engineer “Before the flows arrived here from the Truckee diversion dam, there were only enough culverts here to convey the flow from a natural storm event. So when you add an additional 1000 cfs on top of that, you need a lot more conveyance….and it’s kind of difficult to conceptualize 1000 cfs, but what I tell people is it’s 450 thousand gallons every minute, so it’s a tremendous amount of flow….one of the challenges was figuring out how to convey that safely under the roadway.”.” water was making its way to the 95…and the team had 10 days to ready the roadway… Thor Dyson NDOT District Engineer, NW Nevada “Well, we really were up against the clock…we had a situation out here where construction needed to happen immediately…” “The contractor worked fast and furiously along with NDOT personnel.” “The road was completed and the road was open by March 15th, two days ahead of schedule.” Friday eve of Easter weekend brought a threat of a road washout…. Paul Harmon NDOT Supervisor Fallon “I noticed where we had installed some of the box culverts and some of the existing culverts, how high the water was through here…... I wasn’t confident that the road would still be here in the morning. So we did emergency repairs…we were able to dump about 30 yards of riprap into this particular washout basin to be able to prevent the road from eroding anymore…by Monday afternoon, the water actually started receding, and we were able to see that what we did that night definitely worked and kept 95 open through the weekend.” …the rate of the snowmelt moving forward…is a fluid situation…. Paul “How fast? Mother Nature knows…we don’t. But it’s something NDOT maintenance and District 2 in particular will continue to monitor.” Alan Tinney, P.E. NDOT Division Chief, Stormwater “After a historic weather season, it’s been a collaborative effort between Federal government, State government, local government and the communities to write this story of protecting Fallon from the flooding as best we can…” “This is historic, it’s epic, what we’re witnessing today and what we’ve witnessed the last three months.” “… I’ve looked into the meteorological data going back actually 127 years, and when they started tracking in 1888, and this is the largest water year we’ve had in that 127 years…so I don’t think we’ll see anything like this for a long time again” “I couldn’t be more proud of our community and that connection. And the State of Nevada, and the support of our Governor. We all came together in order to make this possible.”

Nevada law (NRS 484B.607, originally added to NRS in 2003) requires drivers to slow down, proceed with caution, and if possible, move to the far lane when passing an official emergency response vehicle(s) pulled over on the side of the road with amber lights flashing. Effective July 1, an updated law requires drivers to also do the same for Nevada Department of Transportation vehicles which are stopped on the side of the road with their flashing amber or non-flashing blue lights on. Such lights are often used on NDOT vehicles to warn drivers of an immediate traffic hazard, as well as when employees are constructing, maintaining or repairing highways. The law also includes NDOT’s approximately 10 Freeway Service Patrol vehicles which help keeping traffic moving smoothly in Reno and Las Vegas. NDOT has approximately 2,000 pieces of heavy equipment such as snow plows and 850 roadway maintenance and 350 construction administration professionals responsible for maintenance and construction improvements on more than 5,000 miles of state roadway. NDOT maintenance professionals perform as many as 100 different roadway maintenance tasks, from resurfacing state roads to removing snow. They are often some of the very first on scene to assist drivers and emergency responders when there is a roadway incident. In total, 24 NDOT employees have been killed in the line of duty since 1948. The most recent NDOT employee to die in the line of duty was Ron Raiche, Jr., who was struck and killed by an inattentive driver on March 30, 2015 while repairing roadway cracking on Interstate 80 near Battle Mountain. “Each and every NDOT employee works to keep our roads mobile and safe,” NDOT Director Rudy Malfabon explained. “This law will in turn give our NDOT employees an extra measure of roadway safety. Earlier in my NDOT career, I worked on our road construction crews. Now, as NDOT director, I observe the daily efforts of our dedicated NDOT employees that keep our roadsides safe and clear. This law will help keep our state road maintenance and construction crews, as well as drivers, that much safer.” The updated law becomes effective July 1, 2017. Drivers found guilty of violating the law can be charged with a misdemeanor. Many states, including California, Utah, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee and Wisconsin currently have “move over” laws which include state department of transportation maintenance vehicles.
