U.S. 50 in Fallon to see lane closures starting March 7

From March 7 through summer, periodic roadway shoulder, sidewalk and single lane closures will take place on U.S. 50 in downtown Fallon as the Nevada Department of Transportation resurfaces the highway and upgrades sidewalks for enhanced traffic safety and mobility, according to a news release from NDOT.
• March 7 through mid-summer: Lane closures and shifts will take place from 6 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays on eastbound U.S. 50 between Allen Road and Rio Vista Drive for sidewalk improvements.
• Mid to late-summer: Lane closures and shifts will take place on westbound U.S. 50, followed by overnight roadway repaving through late summer.
At least one access to businesses and residences will be maintained as sidewalk and driveway improvements are made, the release said. Periodic local street closures may take place, with nearby detours available. Alternate pedestrian access will always be available through the work zone.
NDOT will repave two miles of U.S. 50 from Allen to Rio Vista Drive, as well as improve existing sidewalks and sidewalk ramps, to enhance roadway surface and accessibility. Currently, one lane of eastbound U.S. 50 transitions to a right turn lane at Sherman Street. The turn lane will become a through/right turn lane that extends 500 feet east of Sherman Street for additional mobility through the intersection.
In 2020, NDOT also improved sidewalks and ramps on nearly two miles of nearby U.S. 95 in Fallon to enhance roadway connectivity, accessibility and safety.
