[ARCHIVED] NDOT resumes work on Highway 160 widening
State road crews return to Pahrump this week, May 15, to continue work on the $3.5 million project widening of State Route 160.
The Nevada Department of Transportation plans to finish constructing the open-grade surface this week for the 1.75-mile stretch from Rainbow Avenue to Calvada Boulevard.
The project could cause lane restrictions and delays in those areas this week.
State crews will then return in a couple weeks, weather permitting, for permanent striping.
The project is to expand the highway from two to four travel lanes, adding a center turn lane and flattening side slope shoulders for safer vehicle turnouts.
Las Vegas Paving is the contractor on the project.
