CARSON CITY, NV - NDOT has reopened Kingsbury Grade (SR207) to through traffic. The next phase of construction begins Tuesday, May 27 with night work beginning at approximately 9 p.m.
The closure of Kingsbury Grade that started May 1 resulted in the completion of 5,000 cubic yards of excavation and installation of 2,600 tons of new asphalt and 1,800 feet of new curb and gutter.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience during this closure, which enabled construction work that usually takes months to complete, to be completed in 23 days,” NDOT Project Manager Pedro Rodriguez said.
Construction continues during the summer months starting Tuesday, May 27 through Friday, Aug. 29, with Kingsbury Grade open to through traffic. However, nighttime construction-related lane closures and delays are expected. The road will be open with one lane in each direction during daytime hours, weekends and all holidays through these summer months with no restrictions.
The approximately $15 million project will reconstruct pavement and make drainage, safety, curb and gutter, sidewalk, lighting and other improvements on areas of Kingsbury Grade from just east of Daggett Summit (Tramway Drive) to the intersection of U.S. 50 at Stateline. Construction follows a schedule designed to complete the project in an accelerated 12 to 18 months.
The public can sign up for construction alerts and see additional project information at kingsburyproject.com. A hotline for the Kingsbury Grade Pavement Reconstruction Project has been set-up at 1-844-888-ROAD and messages will be returned within 24 hours.
In Sparks, Greg Street is back open, too.
According to the city of Sparks, drivers can now access north and southbound lanes of Greg between Larkin Circle and I-80. Northbound had been closed along that stretch since early March. Only one southbound lane was available.
Traffic controls were in place to accommodate the construction of the North Truckee Drain Realignment Project.
