Routing: From U.S. 395 and Interstate 580 at Winters Ranch (near Junction Nevada 429) to U.S. 395/North-South Freeway north of Reno; former Nevada 3.

History: Segment between Patriot Boulevard and Nevada 651/North McCarran Boulevard in Reno is locally maintained; it was state maintained in 2000.

Guide: The reinforced concrete Virginia Street bridge over the Truckee River was erected in 1905, and it survived the 1997 flood in Reno. Further north, in downtown Reno, the famous "Reno Arch" spans Nevada 430. Erected in 1926 to celebrate the completion of the Victory (U.S. 40) and Lincoln (U.S. 50) Highways as part of the "Reno Transcontinental Highway Exposition," it has been replaced three times (1934, 1963, and 1987). The inscription on the arch is from the "Biggest Little City on the Map" slogan from a 1910 contest held in Reno.

NV 431

Active

Approved: 7/1/76

Modified: 4/27/83

Routing: From Nevada 28 along the Mount Rose Highway to Nevada 430 (Business U.S. 395) near Steamboat Springs; former Nevada 27.

Guide: Starting at Nevada 430, Nevada 431 was widened to four lanes with center turn lane on the foothills of Mount Rose at a cost of $8 million in 1993. Commercial and residential development kept pace with this expansion. Two-lane Nevada 431 crosses the Mount Rose summit at elevation 8,911 feet, not much below the 10,778 foot summit of Mount Rose itself. Then it winds southwest toward Lake Tahoe and Incline Village and its terminus.

NV 445

Active

Approved: 7/1/76

Modified: 10/26/77; 4/27/83

Routing: From Interstate 80 to north urban limits of Reno at Milroy Lane north to Pyramid Lake south of Sutcliffe then north to Warrior Point Park Road; former Nevada 33.

Guide: After leaving the suburban areas north of Reno, Nevada 445 crosses the Spanish Springs Valley. This area is targeted for a new residential development by 2010. After reaching the west shore of Pyramid Lake, the pavement ends at the Warrior Point Campground. The non-state highway continues as a gravel road toward Flanigan and ultimately the California State Line.

Future Aspirations: The Regional Transportation Commission has recommended (in August 2000) construction of the "Pyramid Freeway" between north Sparks and Spanish Springs within the next 30 years to ease traffic congestion between Sparks and Spanish Springs in the next 30 years. This freeway would be a six-lane expressway on the Pyramid Highway north from Nevada 650/North McCarran Boulevard to just south of the intersection with La Posada Drive at a cost of $290 million to $354 million. The Pyramid Expressway would have intersections with Pace Boulevard, Sparks Boulevard, Los Altos Parkway and a proposed outer ring road. (Source: Reno Gazette-Journal on Friday August 18th, 2000)

Active

Approved: 7/1/76

Routing: From Nevada 427 at Wadsworth north to Gerlach; former Nevada 34 and 81.

Guide: Nevada 447 is a designated National Scenic Byway. Plans call for a bike path to be constructed along Nevada 447 between Sparks and Pyramid Lake. Travelers along Nevada 447 will encounter several interesting natural phenomena, such as Marble Bluff, the Pyramid in Pyramid Lake, and the Great Stone Mother and Basket. North of Pyramid Lake, Nevada 447 cuts a straight line to Gerlach. Gerlach is interesting because it is the largest settlement in northwestern Nevada, from Reno north to Lakeview, Oregon, and from Susanville east to Winnemucca. Therefore, it provides the only services in this sparsely populated region and is the gateway to the famed Black Rock Desert, home of the annual Burning Man Festival. Nevada 447 ends in Gerlach, but a paved highway continues northwest along old Nevada 81 to Cedarville, California.

US 466 DEAD Former U.S. route that was routed concurrently with U.S. 91 from Stateline northeast to Las Vegas and with U.S. 93 southeast to Hoover Dam. U.S. 466 was created in 1934 and eliminated in 1972. By the time it was decommissioned, U.S. 466 did not have its own extant mileage within the states of Nevada or Arizona. Originally the segment southeast of Las Vegas was only U.S. 466; U.S. 93 was extended south to Kingman and eventually to Wickenburg after U.S. 466 came into existence.
