Intermittent lane closures are occurring on Farm District Road in Fernley on weekdays through Feb. 26 as the Nevada Department of Transportation continues extension of the existing walking and biking path.
NDOT said Farm District Road will be intermittently reduced to one lane at select intersections between Jennys and Jasmine lanes 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Crews will be enhancing roadway curb, drainage and pedestrian ramps. Drivers will see minor travel delays as traffic flaggers alternate directions of traffic at certain intersections.
Furthermore, NDOT said future lane and shoulder closures will also take place in the spring to conduct final construction of the new pathway.
The existing multi-use path on the southwestern side of Farm District Road is being extended from where it currently ends near Cottonwood Elementary School. NDOT said the new section of 10-foot wide path to be constructed from Crimson Way to Jasmine Lane will enhance access and safety for pedestrians, bicyclists and schoolchildren traveling between residential areas in southern Fernley and local schools and other neighboring destinations.
