CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) - The Nevada Department of Transportation will be reducing lanes on Mt. Rose Highway starting June 1 as part of improvements to the Incline Village Highway.

The reductions will be in effect until June 9 and force travel delays of up to 30 minutes from Country Club Drive to the State Route 28 roundabout in Incline Village.

The lane closures will take place 24 hours a day from Sundays at 8:00 p.m. through 7:00 p.m. Fridays. Crews will be removing four inches of aging asphalt and repaving for a smoother roadway.

Residents who live near the highway can expect to hear some construction noise. Commercial trucks with air brakes are prohibited from traveling westbound over Mt. Rose Highway between the Mt. Rose ski resort and Incline Village.

Drivers should expect single-lane closures and travel delays of up to 30 minutes on other sections of Mt. Rose Highway from the summit to the SR28 roundabout and SR28 from Crystal Bay to Sand Harbor State Park.

No lane closures will take place over the holiday weekends.
