Avoid Pyramid Hwy (SR445) and McCarran Blvd (SR659)

Post by Thecatman » Fri Aug 25, 2017 6:45 pm

Because of construction, the intersection of Pyramid Hwy (SR445) and McCarren Blvd (SR659) in Sparks, NV will be closed this weekend from 9:00pm (21:00) Friday August 25 through 06:00am Sunday the 27th. Many heading to the playa use SR445 but it is strongly suggested to find an alternate route during these times and dates. At least when heading to the playa. The intersection will be open for the exodus next weekend. Detour signs are supposed to be posted. Best suggestion is to stay on I80 to Wadsworth.
Call 511 and listen to what the robot says for updates.
