SPONSORED: The Nevada Department of Transportation and RTC put safety and mobility first - and NDOT wants your feedback to paint a blueprint for the future of Mt. Rose Highway.

In just five years, traffic on the valley section of the highway has grown from an average 15,000 vehicles daily to nearly 23,000. NDOT ultimately wants to enhance mobility and safety for everyone as the area continues to develop and grow. Next year, NDOT will add median concrete islands and lengthened turn pockets on Mt. Rose Highway at Callahan Road. They will also channelize and enhance left and right-hand turns between the highway and Edmonton Drive.

The study will evaluate current highway use and potential future traffic needs. And NDOT will gather community and stakeholder feedback to develop a highway master plan with both short and long-term improvements that could be made as funding becomes available. The study will be a collaboration with the community and our local government partners. Together, we will paint a blueprint for the future of the highway.

NDOT wants to hear community feedback and goals for the highway. Later this month, NDOT will host a virtual public meeting to provide information and gather feedback. NDOT hopes that everyone who bicycles, walks, commutes, works or lives on this section of Mt. Rose Highway will provide input.

In the meantime, community members can visit nevadadot.com/mtrose for study details.
