MT. CHARLESON (FOX5) -

Folks heading up to Mount Charleston should encounter a closure on Highway 158 beginning Tuesday.

Nevada Department of Transportation said a project to create sight lines between oncoming traffic and a parking lot is the reason for the closure.

The state route will be closed from the Deer Creek Picnic Area to the intersection of Highway 156 from 7 a.m. Tuesday to 7 p.m. Friday. The picnic area and Highway 156 will both remain open.

In addition, access to the mountain can be made through the 156 and State Route 157, NDOT said.

Those who want to travel from Lee Canyon to Kyle Canyon can go down to U.S. 95 to get across the mountain, NDOT said.
