NDOT To Install Temporary Traffic Signal at Sheckler

On Feb. 3, the Nevada Department of Transportation will begin installation of a new temporary traffic signal at the intersection of U.S. 50 and Sheckler Cut Off in Fallon.

Between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily Monday, Feb. 3 through Wednesday, Feb. 5, single lane closures and traffic switches will be in place at the U.S. 50 and Sheckler Cut Off intersection for installation of the temporary traffic signals. Speed limit reductions and minor travel delays should be anticipated through the work zone.

There are currently no stop signs or signals on U.S. 50 at the intersection, but stop signs are located on both side roads. The new temporary traffic signal will provide more designated turns to the highway. In conjunction with Churchill County, the goal is to help reduce crashes.

Existing highway through lanes and turn lanes will remain at the intersection, but new pavement markings will be in place to help direct motorists to stop as needed for the signal. Temporary electronic highway signs and radar speed feedback signs will be placed in advance of the signal advising motorists to prepare to stop ahead.

With the new traffic signal in place, motorists are reminded to drive safely and attentively, following all traffic signage. Drivers should be prepared to stop at the new signal and leave extra time to travel through the intersection.

A permanent traffic signal is planned for installation in late summer 2020. 

State road information is available at nevadadot.com or by dialing (775)888-7000.
