The temporary closure of part of a north-south highway in west-central Nevada for repairs to earthquake damage is being extended through June 30 for other work.

U.S. 95 between the U.S. Route 6 and State Route 360 junctions in Esmeralda and Mineral counties had been scheduled to reopen Wednesday.

The Nevada Department of Transportation said emergency repairs required due to damage from a May 15 earthquake have been completed but the closure will be extended for an additional pavement project.
