Nevada transportation contracts include maintenance on Kingbury Grade

News Release

 

STATELINE, Nev. – Nevada transportation projects announced this week during the Transportation Board of Directors meeting include maintenance on State Route 207/Kingsbury Grade.

The contracts announced are projected to support 164 jobs.

The projected jobs will be supported for one year by the highway contracts and agreements reviewed as part of the April 11 board meeting.



Since October 2021, more than 7,000 jobs have been supported by state transportation contracts and agreements, said a news release.

On Kingsbury Grade, crews will repair and replace guardrail and roadside drainage berms



Other projects reviewed include:

Construct shared-use path running parallel to State Route 317 directly south of Caliente, including roadway surface, lighting, ramp, and pedestrian crossing improvements.

Construct shared-use path running parallel to State Route 447 in Wadsworth, including drainage, ramp and pedestrian crossing improvements.

Repair and replace guardrail and roadside drainage berms on State Route 341.

Resurface approximately two miles of Rancho Drive from Bonanza Road to Lake Mead Boulevard in the Las Vegas Valley.

NDOT contracts are thoroughly reviewed against engineering estimates and include disadvantaged business enterprise participation goals. Construction start dates vary for each project.

Council of Economic Advisers formulas were used to estimate the number of direct, indirect and induced jobs. It is estimated that every $1 invested in public transportation projects can generate between $2 and $6 in local economic activity.
