Nevada Open Roads Policy
The Open Road Policy states that whenever a roadway or travel lane is closed or partially blocked by a traffic crash, the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Department of Transportation, and other public safety agencies and responders will re-open the roadway as soon as possible.
The State of Nevada Open Roads Policy was endorsed by Governor Brian Sandoval and signed by the Nevada Department of Transportation and the Nevada Department of Public Safety in 2017. On October 20, 2021, it was resigned and endorse by the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), the Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS), and the Governor of Nevada.
Local Open Roads Agreements are endorsed by local agencies throughout the state to formalize their commitment.
