Nevada Department of Transportation crews begin blasting Monday in the mountain pass along highway 160, which connects Las Vegas to Pahrump.
The roadwork is part of a nearly two-year-long road-widening project.
The Nevada Department of Transportation completed a widening of a dangerous stretch of road that links Las Vegas to Pahrump this week.
The $16 million road project widened a five-mile portion of State Route 160, or Blue Diamond Road from two travel lanes to four.
An 11 mile stretch of highway between Las Vegas and Pahrump has seen 280 crashes over a five year period, according to data collected by the Nevada Department of Transportation.
