It Can Be Treacherous Out There

Nevada has over 49,000 miles of roads, streets, and major highways. Because of Nevada's mountainous terrain and Great Basin climate, it is wise to be informed about both highway conditions and weather before venturing far from town. This is particularly true in winter, when severe weather can shut down both major and secondary highways.
