Roads Closed Due to Construction  
None at present time
Dust Suppressant  
We apply dust suppressant to county roads in the late spring and summer months.  We use magnesium chloride and ammonium lignin sulphonate.  Dust suppressant is applied to approximately 136 miles of county roads.
Bridge Work 
None at this time.
Roads Washout Out 
Use caution at this time as many roadways are underwater due to the warm temperature and rain.  Do not attempt to cross flooded areas or roads.
The addressing of houses and street signs is done through our Community Development Department.  They can be reached at (775) 738-6816.

Speeding on county roads is not only dangerous, it also causes washboards to form faster which in turn means a higher cost for maintenance on roads.  Please obey the speed limit.
