Beginning Aug. 14, Interstate 80 lanes will be reduced and shifted over Golconda Summit east of Winnemucca as the Nevada Department of Transportation launches a two-year project to install truck parking lots and climbing lanes.
Just one week before school resumes in Humboldt County, the Nevada Department of Transportation will be closing the bridge on Hanson Street in order to resurface the state route. The closure will result in detouring 12,000 motorists who utilize the overpass daily to just two alternate crossings at Bridge Street and East Winnemucca Boulevard. There are no plans from NDOT to relieve stress on the four-way stop near the railroad tracks (Bridge Street and Haskell), such as additional traffic controls during peak commute times.
