This project is located on US 95 from Schurz, Nevada to 10 miles south of Fallon, Nevada. It is comprised of two nearly 14-mile-long projects for a total of 27.7 miles in length. Some of the construction includes: constructing 1.5-inch mill with 2.5-inch plant mix bituminous surface and an open-grade wearing course overlay; constructing a 4-mile northbound truck climbing lane on Schurz Hill; construction drainage improvements, guardrails, and barrier rail improvements throughout the project limits; replacing a cattle guard; constructing a turn lane at the Schurz Rodeo Grounds; constructing an 1,800-foot turn pocket to add a lane east of US 95 at Sierra Way/Dump Road/US 95 intersection; adding new signage, cameras, and a RWIS station; repairing the “2017 Emergency Flood” structures; and repairing the bridge deck over the Walker River, which will receive a thin-bonded multi-layer overlay. The project also includes a 10-day closure of US 95 for the 10-foot-deep by 2,000-foot-long reconstruction on Schurz Hill – the area has multiple full depth repairs within a 5,000-foot length of US 95, which will require one-lane closures with flagger control.
BEC partnered with Atkins and DCS to provide material testers for the US 95 Reconstruction project. We have also provided a lab trailer to perform onsite laboratory testing for the project.
