RAMP AND LANE CLOSURES FOR SPAGHETTI BOWL CONSTRUCTION NOV. 1-5

CARSON CITY, Nev. – The Nevada Department of Transportation is announcing street and ramp closures

To provide a smoother interstate surface, next week crews will continue repairs to surface cracking and
potholes on I-580 between Mill Street and Moana Lane. In addition to continuing lane and ramp closures
near the spaghetti bowl, drivers should anticipate intermittent overnight lane and ramp closures on I-580
between Mill Street and Moana Lane through December for these important roadway repairs.

On southbound I-580, auxiliary merge lanes and improved ramps will also be added between the Spaghetti Bowl and Plumb Lane, along with sound and aesthetic walls. The first phase of construction will not require relocation of any residences.
