Special event bringing changes to Highway 160 in Pahrump area

Motorists are preparing for temporary changes along Nevada Highway 160 as part of a special event this weekend.

The Nevada Department of Transportation plans to close an 11-mile stretch of southbound Nevada Highway 160 between Tecopa and Sandy Valley roads in Clark County from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m., on Saturday Nov. 4 for a special filming event involving attempted speed records with a Swedish car.

“It will also be closed to roadside parking as well as southbound cyclists and pedestrians during the aforementioned time frames,” the Nevada Department of Transportation announced last week.

Motorists can expect up to 20-minute travel time delays, NDOT said.

Southbound traffic, meanwhile, will temporarily be shifted onto the northbound lanes with traffic controls and escorts from the Nevada Highway Patrol, NDOT added.
