CARSON, Nev. (NV, Globe) – The installation of flashing crosswalk signals at Mountain City Highway and Terminal Way is set to begin on Monday.

Pedestrians will be able to activate the signs to assist stop vehicles as they cross the roadway. Improved roadway lights will also be installed to improve pedestrian visibility.

The Nevada Department of Transportation has stated that intermittent lane and sidewalk closures at the intersection would begin at 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Weekdays from October 3 to November. Following the first week of building, there will be a two-week break as the concrete dries before signal installation resumes.

“The improvements will help enhance safety for pedestrians traveling across the road between nearby hotels, restaurants, businesses, and the Elko Regional Airport,” according to NDOT. “The rapid rectangular flashing beacons will not only facilitate safe pedestrian access, but will also reduce the need for short-range vehicle trips across the intersection.”
