Three roadwork zones in the Incline Village area; Paving begins on Monte Rosa highway
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nevada – The Nevada Department of Transportation has three work areas in the Incline Village area, at Mt. Rose, Crystal Bay and Marlette Creek that began this week.
Work crews Tuesday, May 17 through Friday, May 27 will mill and repave State Route 431/MountRose Highway from the West Summit to through the Meadows. Traffic will be reduced to a single lane and controlled by flaggers. Drivers can expect delays of up to 30 minutes.
Hours of work for paving operations are 24-hour shifts from Sunday 8 p.m. to Friday noon.
All work is subject to weather and temperature conditions, and is subject to change.
In addition to paving on SR-431, Marlette Creek drainage work will begin as well as the installation of intelligent traffic system conduits on sections of SR-28. Drivers can expect delays of up to 30 minutes per work zone.
Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in the Marlette Creek work area and controlled by a temporary automated traffic signal located on SR-28 south of Sand Harbor State Park. Motorists must stop at a red light to allow opposing traffic to circulate safely in the work zone.
Work began Monday on installing ITS conduit through Crystal Bay to the state line.
Initially, working hours are Monday 7:00 a.m. to Friday 5:00 p.m., daytime only. Once the tree felling work is complete, working hours will change from Sunday 8 p.m. to Friday noon.
