The Nevada Department of Transportation is tentatively scheduled to open the USA Parkway extension at noon Sept. 8.
At noon Friday, access from both ends of the USA Parkway is scheduled to open, allowing drivers to travel the 18-plus-mile roadway extension between I-80 west of Fernley and U.S. 50 near Silver Springs. During a ribbon cutting ceremony on Aug. 28, Gov. Brian Sandoval dubbed USA Parkway the “Infinity Highway.”
Motorists are reminded to drive attentively and anticipate minor lane and traffic pattern changes across the area as the new roadway opens. Periodic, minor roadside shoulder and lane closures will take place on the Parkway for finishing construction.
