The roadway shoulder and bridge improvement project on U.S. 95 north of Fallon is going well, said spokeswoman Meg Ragonese of the Nevada Department of Transportation.

She said the project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the summer.

The bridge widening and improvements as part of the project are progressing well. There have been single-lane closures for the bridge improvements in place for the past months, which should remain in place for another month or so. Last month, Ragonese said crews began improvements to the second side of the bridge while finalizing improvements to the original section of the bridge that they have worked on.

Work continues on improving railroad crossings in Churchill County.

Through July, railroad crossings on Regan Place, Lucas Road and Trento, York and Roberson lanes in the Fallon area will be resurfaced from asphalt to concrete. Sections of those roads will be closed, with nearby detours in place, during the road improvements.

Ragonese said approximately $180,000 in improvements are being funded by federal railroad safety funds and Union Pacific Railroad funding. The roadwork is part of NDOT’s railroad safety program in which NDOT works with railway partners to help keep railroad crossings safe for everyone.
