A portion of Russell Road and U.S. Highway 95 in Henderson will be getting an upgrade.
The Nevada Department of Transportation will begin a $3 million, 2-mile beautification project along U.S. Highway 95, at Russell Road on Oct. 22.
The project calls for 15,000 tons of decorative rock and boulders along both sides of the highway that will provide visual enhancements, according to NDOT, with Fisher Sand & Gravel as the contractor,
Work will also include curtailing slope erosion and drainage improvements.
Construction will be Monday through Friday during normal daytime work hours. Rock deliveries will be scheduled at night, resulting in freeway shoulder closures one mile north and south of Russell Road.
Department spokesperson urged motorists to use caution when traveling through the work zone.
The project is scheduled to be complete by late February 2019, according to NDOT.
