RENO — Work to restore damage in the Windy Hill area from the Nov. 18 Caughlin Fire will bring lane closures to Lakeside Drive today.
The street will only have one lane in operation from 8 a.m. to approximately 3 p.m. and flaggers will be directing traffic. Motorists using Lakeside in the Windy Hill area should expect delays and allow additional time or find alternate routes.
The Nevada Land Conservancy, through funding provided by the Truckee River Fund, has hired a contractor to hydroseed nearly 5 acres of private land on the scorched slopes of Windy Hill on the west side of Lakeside Drive above Bartley Ranch. The process includes the application of native grass seed in the affected burn areas.
The traffic plan was approved by the Washoe County Public Works Department and the contractor applying the hydroseed is Kelley Erosion Control. For more information, contact Lynda Nelson at 997-3982 or Tracy Visher at 742-0076 with the Nevada Land Conservatory.
