The Nevada Department of Transportation announced today that Highway 95 south between Fallon and Schurz is scheduled to open to pilot car passage starting Thursday.
Drivers should be prepared for flaggers and 30-minute delays. As the highway opens on April 29 through approximately May 9, there will be traffic delays of up to 30 minutes as pilot cars detour alternating directions of traffic through the work zone and crews finalize reconstruction.
Travelers are asked to use alternate highways and plan additional travel time while detouring the closure.
Crews will work 24-7 during the closure to excavate 10 feet of highway and reinforce and compact a 2,000-foot section of the highway base before repaving to make it a smoother and safer drive.
