The Nevada Department of Transportation proudly supports the state’s economic, environmental and social needs by planning, building and maintaining one of the nation’s highest-ranked bridge systems, and over 5,400 miles of state roadway named some of the nation’s smoothest.
Here, you will find the latest information on how the Department is building roads to the future.
The Nevada Department of Highways was formed on March 23, 1917 with a mission to surface the rutted dirt paths that served as the road network of the time. Historical Nevada transportation photos, videos and decade-by-decade history of the progression of state highways are now available at nevadadot.com/100 and by following the department on Facebook and Twitter. An historical e-book will also be published on-line this week. Nevada residents are also invited to provide memories or reflections of early Nevada transportation to potentially be included on the NDOT website and social media posts by visiting nevadadot.com/100 or contacting NDOT at (775) 888-7000.
