Road Restrictions Planned for Mt. Charleston
Road Restrictions Planned for Mt. Charleston

 

Roads on Mount Charleston will be restricted and closed while crews work to improve trails and parking lots.

The Nevada Department of Transportation will restrict lanes along State Route 158 starting at 7 a.m. Wednesday. NDOT will be test blasting in the area ahead of an excavating project to eventually lengthen and add a new overlook to the trail on State Route 158.

Crews will be cutting into the face of the mountain so that on-coming traffic can see the nearby parking lot, which is being expanded and widened. The lane restrictions will be lifted at 7 p.m. Thursday.

That is only the start of the road restrictions. Starting at 7 a.m. Monday, State Route 158 will be closed from the Deer Creek Picnic Area to the intersection of State Route 156. The picnic area and State Route 156 will be open for area residents to get to their homes. The closures will be in place until 7 p.m. Thursday, August 16. The trail and parking lot upgrades are expected to be finished by November.

The up-coming closures are just the beginning of restrictions along State Route 156, otherwise known as Lee Canyon Road, State Route 157, otherwise known as Kyle Canyon Road, and State Route 158. Drivers should be prepared for detours and long delays.
