Providing Assistance to Further Economic Development

Return to Major Projects

January 5, 2017

As businesses continue to relocate to Nevada, the state’s infrastructure needs are growing. Recently, the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) asked NV Energy for assistance with a necessary road expansion project from the northern Nevada TRI Center to the U.S. 50 Silver Springs corridor.

One of the electric lines occupied the direct path of the planned expansion. Moving the line required our crews to secure new land easements in order to relocate 70 poles that spanned approximately 12 miles. This project began in the summer of 2015 and was completed in less than a year.

Once NV Energy moved the line, NDOT began working on this vital economic development project that will link northern Nevada communities by providing a direct route for the growing work force and an alternate route for southern bound freight traffic.  

This important project demonstrates NV Energy’s support of economic development in the state and our ongoing role in helping meet the needs of our community as it continues to grow.
