Milling & Paving Old Southbound Lanes Next Week: Queen Way to Los Altos Pkwy
Starting Monday, October 16 crews will begin milling, or grinding out, the old southbound lanes of Pyramid Highway between Queen Way and Los Altos Parkway and repaving them. Drivers can expect to see an increase in truck traffic in the area. Construction vehicles and trucks enter the work zone via southbound Pyramid near Los Altos Parkway, and they exit the work zone at the Farr Lane intersection.
Drive with caution and obey the speed limit while going through the work zone.
Once paving is complete, traffic will be shifted to the west side of the highway so widening operations can take place on the east side. The traffic shift is anticipated to happen the week of October 23.
Nightly Southbound Pyramid Closure During Paving
The southbound lanes on Pyramid Highway between Disc Drive and Farr Lane will be closed each night next week for paving operations. Nightly closures will occur between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m.
Southbound traffic will detour to Disc Drive to Sparks Boulevard, then to Baring Boulevard to McCarran Boulevard
Northbound Pyramid Highway will remain open but reduced to a single lane
