Beginning tomorrow, construction-related travel delays will take place on I-80 east of Sparks and at the U.S. 50 and U.S. 95A intersection in Silver Springs.
Minor travel delays will take place May 31 at the U.S. 50 and U.S. 95A intersection in Silver Springs as part of a Nevada Department of Transportation road improvement project.
Periodic single lane closures will be in place on Interstate 80 east of Reno/Sparks over the coming week as the Nevada Department of Transportation installs new roadway signs marking the USA Parkway State Route 439 interchange.
At the U.S. 50/95A intersection, traffic flaggers will be directing vehicle traffic through the intersection May 31 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. as large haul trucks deliver road materials to construct a freeway truck climbing lane in the area. Drivers should expect up to 20-minute travel delays.
The road work is part of an NDOT project to repave approximately 11 miles of U.S. 95A between U.S. 50 in Silver Springs and Royal Oaks Drive south of Fernley. New passing lanes will also be installed and roadside guardrail replaced. Through late fall, additional periodic lane and roadway shoulder closures will periodically take place on Alternate U.S. 95 between Silver Springs and Fernley.
The approximately $7.6 million project by A&K Earth Movers, Inc. will improve the highway for the nearly 5,000 drivers which travel it daily.
The schedule for single lanes closures on I-80 is:
- May 31: Single lane closure eastbound I-80 between Patrick/Derby Dam 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
- June 1: Single lane closure westbound I-80 between Patrick/Derby Dam 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

- June 6: Single lane closure both directions of I-80 between Patrick/Derby Dam 8 p.m. June 6 to 5 a.m. June 7.
Speeds through the work zone will be reduced to 55 mph. Motorists should anticipate moderate travel delays and are asked to allow extra travel time in the area and always drive safely through road work zones.
