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. There will be intermittent lane closures on Fifth Street, Fairview Drive and the freeway ramps, but no significant delays are expected. Please use caution.
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 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. However, no work will be performed on the project Nov. 24-26.
Due to water utility improvements, the following is expected to occur:
• Hells Bells Road between Parkhill Drive and Marsh Road will be closed to through traffic (local traffic allowed) all week.
• Fairview Drive between Butti Way and 5th Street roundabout will be reduced to one lane with flaggers during daytime hours.
Saliman Road will be reduced to one lane in the southbound direction between Colorado Street and Sonoma Street. Heather Way is closed at Saliman Road due to sidewalk improvements.
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.
