This summer, NDOT and Q&D Construction will be making much needed improvements to the 13-year-old northern section of the I-580 Carson City Freeway. The existing roadway is rutting and cracking on this section of interstate which was first open in 2006. Approximately two inches of the roadway surface will be removed and repaved on nearly six miles of interstate.
The project limits are on I-580 Carson City Freeway from Duck Hill in northern Carson City to the Fairview Drive exit in central Carson City. Construction is anticipated to begin on Monday, May 20, 2019. Drivers will see night time single lane closures, ramp closures and minor detours. No two consecutive ramps will be closed at the same time.
Crews will work to complete the improvements in one season, but operations may continue into 2020 with a winter shutdown. Construction is weather permitting.
