WASHOE VALLEY, Nev. (KOLO) - The Nevada Department of Transportation will repave Franktown Road on the west side of Washoe Valley beginning Monday.

The work is expected to last until early October, NDOT said in a statement. They will finish drainage and repave the road. People will still be able to get to driveways and homes during the work.

Most work will happen between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. on weekdays. Construction crews will use a flagger and single lanes of traffic in alternating directions. A one-way traffic pattern, with drivers entering Franktown Road near Bowers Mansion and leaving at the south end of Washoe Valley, will be added in mid-September, NDOT said.

This is part of a $1.4 million project by contractor A&K Earthmovers, Inc., NDOT said.
