2018 Winter Update

The Nevada Department of Transportation is enacting a change on certain Tahoe-area highways which will now require any vehicle traveling without tire chains during winter chain restrictions to be four-wheel or all-wheel drive with snow tires.

All vehicle types with chain or snow tires were previously allowed during chain requirements. Under the new requirement, only four-wheel or all-wheel vehicles with snow tires and all vehicles with approved tire chains will be allowed when chain requirements are in place on the following state roads:
State Route 431 (Mt. Rose Highway)
State Route 207 (Kingsbury Grade)
U.S. 50- between Glenbrook and Carson City

Tire and chain requirements will not change on other highway corridors. The revised chain requirements will also be reflected on the nvroads.com road conditions website.
