NDOT reschedules overnight closures for Highway 28 south of Incline Village
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Winter weather has forced the Nevada Department of Transportation to reschedule overnight closures on Nevada Route 28 originally planned for this week.
NDOT originally planned the closures for Dec. 4-6 to allow for the installation of bridges on a new shared-used path.
However, with more winter weather in the forecast Tuesday, potentially adding to the snow dumped during recent storms, NDOT opted to reschedule the closures.
The overnight closures are now slated for Dec. 11-13. The closures are weather dependent and subject to change.
Both directions of the highway will be closed between Lakeshore Boulevard in southern Incline Village near Tunnel Creek Café and Sand Harbor State Park from 8 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. Dec. 11-13, according to NDOT.
Construction-related daytime single-lane, flagger-controlled closures will also occur Monday, Dec. 10, through Friday, Dec. 14, from approximately 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. with delays of 20-30 minutes, as necessary and weather permitting.
During the closures, north-to-south traffic can take Mount Rose Highway from Incline Village to south Reno before taking Interstate 580 to U.S. 50 to Lake Tahoe.
The roadway closure will allow for installation of a bridge deck totaling nearly 250 feet in length, one of five pre-fabricated bridge decks being installed on the 3-plus mile shared use path under construction between southern Incline Village and Sand Harbor State Park.
The closures are scheduled for overnight hours to avoid impact on heavy daytime traffic. A first round of closures in late October wrapped up two days earlier than planned.
