Lane Closure to Mark Start of SR157 Widening, Improvements

Lane Closure to Mark Start of SR157 Widening, Improvements

LAS VEGAS – The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will implement lane restrictions on Kyle Canyon Road (State Route 157) starting at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2. Kyle Canyon will be reduced to one lane in a roughly four-mile stretch encompassing the actual work zone (Mile Markers 3.5 and 5.5). The widening and improvements project is part of a collaborative, multi-agency effort funded and supported by FHWA, the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS).

The project includes adding approximately 17 miles of road shoulder/bike lanes and two roundabouts to Kyle Canyon Road an additional roundabout to Lee Canyon Road to improve access near developed recreation sites. During construction, travel will be reduced to one lane of traffic and delays are expected. Motorists are advised to plan accordingly. The initial work involves clearing and grubbing operations. The project is expected to finish in late 2014.

A scenic byway maintained by NDOT, Kyle Canyon Road is an important transportation corridor for approximately 400 residents in Mount Charleston, Rainbow and Echo subdivisions and businesses in upper Kyle Canyon. This road is also a designated Forest Highway, serving as a primary access route for visitors to the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area managed by USFS as well as the Red Rock Conservation Area managed by the Bureau of Land Management. Funding and support for this project comes from several agencies and construction will be overseen by the FHWA.

NDOT strives to provide current information about construction schedules and highway and roadway restrictions and closures. Unscheduled restrictions and closures may occur and weather can impact work schedules. For the latest information on Nevada highway conditions, call 5-1-1 or log on to www.nvroads.com.
