Periodic single lane and shoulder closures will be in place through fall on Alternate U.S. 95 north of Silver Springs as the Nevada Department of Transportation repaves and adds passing lanes to the highway.
Beginning Monday, April 17 through late fall, periodic lane and roadway shoulder closures will take place on Alternate U.S. 95 between Silver Springs and Fernley. Approximately 11 miles of U.S. 95A will be repaved between U.S. 50 in Silver Springs and Royal Oaks Drive south of Fernley.
A cold in-place recycling technique will incorporate and recycle the existing pavement surface into new roadway base which will be topped with three inches of new asphalt. Two new 4,700-foot long passing lanes, one in each direction, will be constructed and one northbound truck climbing lane installed. Roadside guardrail will also be replaced, and three new animal crossing signs installed.
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. Further project information is available at www.nevadadot.com or by dialing (775) 888-7000.
