Road closure and detour for Bowers Mansion road at US395

Friday July 22, 2011, at 5pm, SR429 (Bowers Mansion road) will be closed from US395 to Davis Creek Camp Road. It will be closed for approximately 1 year while the interchange is completed.

A detour has been created from Davis Creek Camp Road to Parker Ranch road, then down to 395 next to the Chocolate Nugget Candy Factory. The normal flow of northbound/southbound traffic on 395 will not be impacted unless high wind warnings for commercial and/or high profile vehicles are in place, or other conditions are present that affect travel through Washoe Valley.

During these prohibitions, all commercial and high profile vehicles will be required to take the indicated alternate route. This will likely cause traffic problems for vehicles entering and exiting 395 at Parker Ranch Road, and may require targeted traffic control.

In addition to this, on Friday, July 22, 2011, at 7pm, for a period of 24 hours, the southbound lanes at Bowers turnoff will be reduced to one lane and shifted East onto the newly paved portion next to the NB lanes. No later than Saturday, July 23 at 6pm, both southbound lanes will again be open.

The following website has up-to-date information for road closures and incidents.

As always, please Buckle Up and drive safe.
