Overnight Closures For Carson City Freeway Project

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nighttime road closures in South Carson City as part of a freeway project began Sunday.

KTVN-TV in Reno reports that the closures start at 9 p.m. on South Carson Street and U.S. 50 near Spooner Junction.

According to the Nevada Department of Transportation, the closures will last a week and take place nightly from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m.

NDOT says crews will be building a drainage culvert under the freeway to house a conveyor system.

That system will be used to move nearly 6 million cubic yards of earth and save time by not having to move it all by truck.

The Carson City Freeway Project is expected to be completed in 2017. It is aiming open up 4 miles of freeway to traffic.
