GENOA, Nev. — The Douglas County Public Works Department put a planned project to repave roughly seven miles of Jacks Valley Road out for bid Wednesday morning.

Bids will be accepted through April 28.

The project, estimated to cost between $4.1 and $4.4 million, will consist of two sections — first the road will be pulverized to full depth and paved back to a depth of four inches from Genoa Lane to Upper James Canyon. Second, the road will be pulverized to full depth, cement treated to six inches and paved back to five inches from Upper James Canyon to Alpine View Court.

Additional items for the project include the removal and resetting of the guard rail and the construction of 300 square yards of subsurface drainage system.

Work is expected to begin in the early summer and be complete around the end of August.

The road served as the only route between the Valley and Carson City for periods of time during two major flooding events this past winter.

With several months of extreme freeze-thaw cycles and above-average moisture in Douglas County, Jacks Valley road was one of many in the Valley to suffer an exceptional increase in potholes.

Jacks Valley Road from Jacks Valley Elementary School To Alpine View Court was reconstructed last summer.
