Highway 95 Reopened

The Nevada Department of Transportation reopened U.S. 95 south of Fallon ahead of schedule on Wednesday, March 15 following installation of additional drainage culverts to help protect the roadway during local flood mitigation efforts.

A section of the highway south of Fallon was closed over the past six days as twelve six-foot-by-four-foot box drainage culverts were added to the existing ten roadway culverts to help channel water underneath the highway as floodwaters are diverted from Lahontan Reservoir. In less than one week, crews excavated approximately 3,000 cubic yards of earth, installed 860 feet of new box drainage culverts and repaved the roadway.
