Single lane closures will take place on U.S. 50 in east Carson City Sunday morning as the Nevada Department of Transportation repairs a section of roadway median barrier damaged in a crash.
The left lanes of both eastbound and westbound U.S. 50 will be closed near Drako Way in east Carson City Sunday between approximately 5 and 10 a.m. Motorists are advised to anticipate brief travel delays, particularly when traveling westbound from the Dayton area to Carson City.
Crews will replace an attenuator, or crash cushion, at the end of a roadway barrier wall. Stationed at the end of roadway barriers or guardrails, attenuators serve as a crash cushion to help reduce damage to drivers, vehicles and surrounding roadway structures during a crash.
