The next time you cross state lines, you'll see a new welcome sign.

The Nevada Department of Transportation is installing two new "Welcome to Nevada" monuments at two entrances into the state along U.S. 395.

The first monument was installed on October 15, 2019 near Topaz Lake. A second one will be installed by the end of October near Bordertown.

Drivers can expect brief lane closures during the monument installation.

Future monuments are planned for State Route 28 in Crystal Bay and I-11 near Hoover Dam, though NDOT has not released a timeline for those signs.

The monuments are made of stainless and weathering steel with natural rock or concrete bases, and are 14 feet tall.

While each gateway monument features the Nevada state name, state silhouette and “Battle Born” motto, NDOT says the monuments consist of slightly different designs expressing the unique surroundings of the natural environment.

In 2017, NDOT also installed new welcome signs at approximately 25 other border locations statewide. The standard-sized roadway signs replaced the previous welcome signs and were designed by Nevada high school graphic artists.
