CARSON CITY, Nev. – Single lane closures will take place on U.S. 395 south of Gardnerville the evenings of Sept. 23 and Sept. 24 as the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) replaces a cattle guard across the highway.

U.S. 395 will be reduced to one lane from Leviathan Mine Road to Verta Grande Mine Road between 7:00 p.m.- 6:00 a.m. both evenings of Sept. 23 and Sept. 24 as the roadway cattle guard is replaced. Traffic flaggers will alternate directions of travel through the work zone, with travel delays of up to 30 minutes to be anticipated. Brief single lane closures will also take place later in the week for repaving of the cattle guard approaches.

As a dimensional barrier many animals are reluctant to cross, the cattle guard helps keep drivers and animals safer by limiting livestock from entering the southern fenced section of highway. The road work schedule is subject to change.
