Plan Ahead for Road Delays

U.S. Highway 50 Project – ‘Y’ to Trout Creek

Caltrans is working on a water quality and highway reconstruction project from the “Y” intersection with State Route 89 to the Trout Creek Bridge. Construction will start at the “Y” and work its way east to Trout Creek. The first phase this year will be from the “Y” to Winnemucca Avenue. The contractor will be allowed to work around the clock Monday through Thursday and until 11 a.m. Friday before Memorial Day and after Labor Day and until 8 a.m. Friday between Memorial Day and Labor Day. At least one lane will be open to traffic in each direction at all times. No lane closures will be permitted on weekends or around major holidays. Motorists may experience delays of up to 30 minutes traveling through the construction zone. A map of the project area can be found on the Caltrans site.
