The state transportation board this week approved a series of contracts to resurface and upgrade nearly a dozen roads and highways across the state.
Most of the projects are in rural Nevada except for some work on Interstate 580 and Interstate 80.
A spokesman for NDOT said the projects are projected to create 483 jobs for Nevada workers for the coming year, including workers in disadvantaged businesses.
In the Carson City area, work includes upgrading a multi-use path along U.S. 50 in eastern Carson City.
Workers will also reconstruct and repave five miles of State Route 361 in Churchill County and reconstruct nine miles of westbound I-80 east of the Humboldt County/Lander County line.
Damaged barrier rail and high-mast lighting on I-580 in Washoe County is also scheduled for repair as is a mile of McCarran Boulevard near I-80 in Sparks.
Roadside fencing will be installed along two miles of I-80 in Elko County along with installation of landscaping, stormwater and aesthetic improvements to three I-80 interchanges in Battle Mountain.
The work is all to be completed in the coming year using Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act funding from the federal government.
