WASHOE VALLEY — As of Friday, SR429 (Bowers Mansion Road) will be closed from U.S. 395 to Davis Creek Camp Road. It will be closed for about one 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.
