LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation is undertaking a $5.9 million, 2-mile-long upgrade of Jones Boulevard (State Route 596) from Upland Boulevard (just south of U.S. Highway 95) to Smoke Ranch Road starting Monday.

Plans call for a complete roadway rejuvenation, replacing the aggregate subbase and repaving the surface with new asphalt. When finished,drivers will be sure to notice a smoother, safer driving surface, with no cracking, rutting, and dips.

Other improvements, meanwhile, entail handicap accessible curb and gutter upgrades and installing pedestrian-activated crosswalks at Carmen Boulevard, Carl Avenue, and Eugene Avenue. Crews will be working from 6 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. weekdays.

Activity will initially begin at Smoke Ranch Road, working southbound, resulting in lane restrictions. The project is anticipated to finish in January 2021
