RENO, Nev. (KOLO) – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will be installing flashing wind warning signs for enhanced driver safety on U.S. 395 in the North Valleys. There will be roadway shoulder closures in place starting Tuesday while crews install the signs. Those shoulder closures will take place weekdays from 6 a.m.-5 p.m. through October 23 on small sections between Lemmon Drive and Village Parkway.
The six wind warning signs, three in each direction, will be unveiled between Golden Valley and Bordertown. Lights on the advisory signs will flash when wind gusts reach 45 mph or greater, notifying drivers of high-profile vehicles of nine feet or taller that travel through the area is not advised, and cautioning drivers of all other vehicles to reduce speeds.
In addition, four signs are being installed advising motorists to be aware of deer crossing in the area.
