Beginning later this month, overnight lane and ramp closures are scheduled to begin on the Interstate 580 Carson City Freeway as the Nevada Department of Transportation resurfaces and enhances the interstate. The work is scheduled to tentatively begin May 28.

The interstate will be resurfaced between Duck Hill in northern Carson City and the Fairview Drive exit. Approximately two inches of the roadway surface will be removed and repaved on nearly six miles of interstate.

Traffic cameras will be added at major interchanges to provide additional travel condition information before driving. Yield signs at U.S. 50 and College Parkway interstate on-ramps will be enhanced with flashing beacons coordinated with traffic signals for better visibility and compliance while merging. Enhancements and repairs will also be made to the surfaces of certain interstate bridges.

Exit numbers on the Carson City Freeway will also be changed per federal requirements which ensure consistent nationwide freeway signs and mileposts convey a clear message and help guide, warn and regulate traffic. Updated exit number information is available at

The approximately $13 million in improvements by contractor Q&D Construction will enhance the interstate for the nearly 33,000 drivers who travel it daily.
