TONOPAH, NEV., — A 6.4-magnitude earthquake at approximately 4:03 a.m. this morning, 20 miles southeast of Mina, resulted in minor pavement damage to a half-mile section of U.S. Highway 95, north of the U.S. Route 6 junction in Tonopah.
Most of the cracked areas have a minor lift that, as a temporary fix, will be shaved to minimize roadway surface bumps until a full repair can be scheduled in the future.
As a preventative safety measure, meanwhile, the department has temporarily closed U.S. Highway 95 between the U.S. Route 6 junction and U.S. Highway 360, with traffic being detoured while maintenance crews perform emergency repairs and inspect for further damage.
The temporary closure will remain in place until 5 p.m., May 15. Motorists should use alternate detour routes, if possible. For the latest state highway conditions, visit nvroads.com or call 511 before driving.
