Both roundabouts in Pahrump open

Both roundabouts on Highway 372 in Pahrump are open. The Nevada Department of Transportation oversaw the $4.05 million project that built roundabouts on the highway at Pahrump Valley Boulevard and Blagg Road.
According to NDOT, roundabouts reduce crashes by 35 percent when compared to stoplights, reduce injury crashes by 76 percent and fatalities by 90 percent. The reason is that motorists drive slower to negotiate the roundabout, so crashes are less severe, which ultimately saves taxpayers money, related to permanent injuries sustained in a traffic crash.
The project took nearly six months of construction to complete.
State and Nye County officials celebrated the completion of construction on May 25, 2017, at the Pahrump Valley Boulevard intersection. See video here
