Carson City road report for Dec. 13-19
For the week of Dec. 13-19:
On Thursday, Roop Street will permanently reopen following a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. The JAC transit service will resume service on its regular published routes beginning Friday.
The Nevada Department of Transportation will continue working on a freeway landscaping project at the Fifth Street overpass over the freeway and at the Fairview Drive Interchange. Single-lane closures are expected on the northbound onramp from Fairview Drive to the freeway. No delays are expected. Single-lane closures with flaggers are also expected on Fairview Drive and on 5th Street in the vicinity of the freeway, with minor delays expected.
Due to water utility improvements, the following is expected to occur:
• Fairview Drive between Butti Way and 5th Street roundabout will be reduced to one lane with flaggers during daytime hours. Expect minor delays.
• Butti Way between Airport Road and Fairview Drive will be reduced to one lane with flaggers during daytime hours. Expect minor delays.
Weather permitting, NDOT will close one lane in the southbound direction on Highway 395 at the Carson/Washoe County line Monday through Friday.
As a result of the next phase of the NDOT project on the freeway, Koontz Lane will be closed between Raglan Circle and Edmonds Drive until January. In addition, southbound traffic on Edmonds Drive at Koontz Lane will continue to experience a lane shift and temporary traffic control for the next several weeks as the connection of Koontz Lane to Edmonds Drive is constructed. This lane shift will be in effect from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. during weekdays.
Construction will continue near the intersection of Northridge Drive and Russell Way for the Fulstone Wetlands Enhancement project. Work will be off-street, but there may be occasional delays due to construction activity. Pedestrians are advised to use the sidewalk on the south side of Northridge Drive.
The outside southbound lane on Carson Street will be closed approximately between Musser and Spear streets from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday due to work on signage on a building in this area.
