Last time I drove the 95 to Reno I noticed the NHP was was leaving their radar off, but would suddenly flip it on at the last minute against oncoming traffic. I assume a lot of people on 95 must have detectors and the NHP is changing tactics a bit.
U.S. 95 will be closed between Fallon, Nevada and Schurz, Nv April 19-29, 2021.
U.S. 95 will be closed between Fallon and Schurz April 19-29 as the Nevada Department of Transportation reconstructs a section of highway.
• Between 7a.m. April 19 and 7a.m. April 29, U.S. 95 will be closed between the Fallon landfill (one and a half miles south of Top Gun Raceway) and the rodeo grounds north of Schurz as crews reconstruct a section of highway.
• As the highway opens on April 29 through approximately May 9, traffic delays of up to 30 minutes will be in place as pilot cars detour alternating directions of traffic through the work zone and crews finalize reconstruction.
Nearly one dozen electronic highway message signs will be placed across the region advising drivers of the closure. Motorists are advised to use alternate highways and plan additional travel time while detouring the closure. The road work schedule is subject to change based on weather and other factors.
Crews will work 24-7 during the closure to excavate 10 feet of highway, and reinforce and compact a 2,000-foot section of the highway base before repaving. The reconstruction will help reinforce the deteriorating roadway base to provide a smoother and safer drive for motorists.
