  • Going to Spring Mountain Stingray Performance course? Read this.

    If you are scheduled to attend the Ron Fellows Spring Mountain Stingray Performance Driving course in the near future to about a year out, you should know that there is ongoing road construction work on route 160 (the only way you can get to Spring Mountain). I drove it yesterday, and the normal approximately one hour 10 or 15 minutes drive, was extended by 15 minutes. This was at 6:30 a.m. That isn't much of a delay, however, it can be as much as a half hour to 45 minutes added because there are several places that they have traffic stoppage for the ongoing construction. Additionally, about 15 miles of the route has only one lane (this starts about 20 miles out from Spring Mountain), so if you get behind a slow vehicle or construction vehicle, you can not pass.

    Another related issue is that they are doing blasting on the same route, and that results in total stoppage during the blasts. Here is the DOT description:

    CLARK COUNTY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will begin blasting alongside State Route 160 (Blue Diamond Road), east of Mt. Potosi Road in southwest Clark County, starting September 24. Blasting is needed to remove fractured bedrock outcroppings for a $58.6 million, 6-mile-long highway widening from two to four travel lanes between Mile Markers 16 and 22, and from there extending to one mile north of the Nye County line. Aggregate Industries SWR Inc. is the general contractor.

    Blasting will occur from roughly 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., every other workday, resulting in brief highway closures, ranging from 30 minutes up to 120 minutes, while crews place explosives, check the blast area and clear away any stray rubble and debris. The first round of blasting will continue through October 15.
    Construction is scheduled for completion in August 2020. Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. NDOT works with Waze to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors. For the latest state highway conditions, visit nvroads.com or call 511 before driving.

    As always, along that route you can expect the presence of NV Highway Patrol.
