Single lane closures will take place Tuesday, March 19 on Alternate U.S. 50/Alternate U.S. 95 in Silver Springs as part of Nevada Department of Transportation highway improvements.
U.S. 95A just north of the U.S. 50 intersection in Silver Springs will be reduced to a single lane between 7 a.m.-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. 95 in the coming months.
The Alternate U.S. 95 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 Roy’s Road in Stagecoach. The nearly 10 miles of highway to be widened is traveled by approximately 6,000 drivers daily.
A traffic roundabout will replace the existing flashing traffic signal at the U.S. 50 and Alternate U.S. 95 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.
