CARSON CITY, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Two public meetings will be held to discuss the schedule to complete the Nevada Department of Transportation’s upcoming Kingsbury Grade Pavement Reconstruction Project.
The first meeting will be held on March 19 at the Ridge Tahoe in Stateline, and the second will be held March 20 at Douglas High School in Minden. Both meetings will provide the same information in an open format, with the public invited to attend any time between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. A project presentation will be given both evenings at 5:30 p.m.
The approximately $15 million project will reconstruct pavement and make drainage, safety, curb and gutter, sidewalk, lighting and other improvements on areas of Kingsbury Grade (SR 207) from just east of Daggett Summit (Tramway Drive) to the intersection of U.S. 50 at Stateline.
Construction is scheduled to start in early May and will follow a very aggressive schedule to complete the project in an accelerated twelve to eighteen months. During a nearly month-long period directly prior to Memorial Day and another month-long period after Labor Day, Kingsbury Grade will be closed to through traffic near the summit, just east of Tramway Drive.
The public can sign up for construction alerts and see additional project information at the Kingsbury project website, or by dialing 1-844-888-ROAD.
