LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - At a time when most Nevadans have been urged to stay home to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), road construction rolls on.

The Nevada Department of Transportation  says they will continue to fulfill all essential public highway services, including roadway maintenance and construction. Following Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak’s direction and public health guidelines, the Department has transitioned to on-line business services and protocols as a proactive measure to help reduce spread of COVID-19 in our communities. 

All essential highway services, including highway maintenance activities such as snow removal and roadway repairs, continue as is. 

NDOT road maintenance and construction team members continue their highway work, with crew members practicing social distancing and often staggered into multiple shifts to cover weather events and other highway needs.

NDOT road operations centers continue uninterrupted for the dispatch of highway maintenance and incident response and reporting of road conditions. Updated highway conditions, including weather and construction, continue to be available at nvroads.com or by dialing 511. The NVRoads app offers the same information.

State highway rest areas remain open, some with disinfectant cleanings occurring as frequently as every hour.
