Major Streets, Infrastructure project scheduled for elementary school area this year

A major streets/infrastructure improvements project in the Central Elementary School area is coming up this year in Nevada and will impact traffic and properties on several streets.

The project area includes 9th Street from G to I Avenue, I Avenue from 8th to 9th Street, and H Avenue from 8th to 10th Street. (see map image)

The following improvements will take place during this project:

  • Removal and replacement of street pavement.
  • Removal and replacement of sidewalk curb ramps and other sidewalk segments impacted by the project.
  • Removal and replacement of driveway approaches between the sidewalk and back of curb.
  • Removal and replacement of underground public utilities (storm sewer, sanitary sewer and water main).
  • Replacement of sanitary and water service lines to individual residences (connections to existing service lines made near sidewalk).
  • Restoration of all disturbed areas with seed.


The City is sending out notices to all affected property owners and residents who live in the project area.


Because this project is anticipated to start in April and run through November, school officials have been informed about all aspects of this project and will be coordinating bus routes, and elementary drop-off and pick-up changes that will be needed during the construction period.


City and School officials will be present to answer questions and speak with residents during an upcoming PUBLIC MEETING about this project. The meeting will be held at Gates Memorial Hall, 825 15th St., on Thursday, February 1, starting at 6:30 p.m. All residents interested in learning about this project are welcome to attend. For those unable to attend in person, the meeting will be livestreamed at this link:


City officials say the main reason this project has been prioritized to happen this year is aging infrastructure and damage to the roads. “The streets surrounding the elementary school are in some of the worst shape around the community, due to some of the aging infrastructure or lack thereof, and flooding does occur on those streets during rain events,” said City Administrator Jordan Cook.


City Consulting Engineer Brandon Mickelson also noted that this project will be a chance to redirect a water main that runs along the front of the elementary building, so that any potential break wouldn’t cause major problems for the school in the future.
