Lyon County officials demand highway improvements along East Highway 50

There have been numerous traffic crashes on Highway 50 for many years on both sides of the Carson City/Lyon County Line.  A Resolution of the Lyon County Board of Commissioners requests that Governor Sisolak to direct the Nevada Department of Transportation to implement safety equipment and other safety measures on Highway 50 from the Carson City Line to Ten Mile Hill.

The Lyon County Board of Commissioners recognizes the increased volume of traffic on Highway 50 between the Carson City county line and Ten Mile Hill and that the Lyon County Board of Commissioners have seen firsthand and have received numerous citizen complaints concerning the increased traffic accidents resulting in serious injury and deaths on this section of Highway 50.  They point out that there
are a number of intersections that are unsafe for left hand turns and there are a number of intersections that do not have acceleration lanes to safely enter Highway 50.

The Lyon County Board of Commissioners say they don’t have the authority or jurisdiction to build, maintain, design or install safety equipment on this section of Highway 50.  For that, Lyon County Commissioners requests that Governor Sisolak direct the Nevada Department of Transportation to install safety equipment and direction signs on Highway 50 from the Carson City Line to Ten Mile Hill including installing traffic signals to enhance intersection safety for left hand turns and reduced speed.  Also, to install acceleration lanes to improve safe lane access onto Highway 50. 

And lastly, to install appropriate equipment between both directions of travel to reduce collisions caused by traffic crossing over into oncoming vehicles.
