is part of NDOT’s project to widen U.S. 50 from a two-lane to a four-lane
divided highway between Roy’s Road in Stagecoach and the U.S. 95A junction in
Silver Springs. As part of the project begun in January 2019, crews have thus
far excavated and paved approximately nine miles of new U.S. 50 westbound and
eastbound lanes, as well as made drainage improvements. Eight frontage roads have
also been constructed, tying local access roads into major intersections for
safer designated turns to and from the highway. Fourteen miles of new four
strand, four-foot high livestock/wildlife fencing have been constructed on both
sides of the highway to reduce vehicle-animal collisions and enhance safety.
The project is scheduled to complete in the second half of 2020.
