Two electric car charging stations are being installed onsite thanks to a grant from NV Energy. The charging stations are being installed at a temporary location on the south side of the When the site work starts the charging station will be moved to their final locations and will replicate the traditional gas pumps onsite.
A 13,000 cubic foot precast concrete detention reservoir is being constructed under the future parking area at the station. NDOT will connect new storm drains to the reservoir when the highway is reconstructed in 2022. Next year the town will install outlet pipes from the station to the Martin Slough. Once the storm drain is connected and the highway is reconstructed the Town can proceed to complete the site work. The detention reservoir was paid for in large part by a Community Development Block Grant.
The Ribbon Cutting ceremony has been cancelled and will be rescheduled in the near future.
The Town of Gardnerville, along with Main Street Gardnerville and the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce, held the Ribbon Cutting for the Gardnerville Station on Monday, December 17, 2018 at 4:30 pm. Attendees enjoyed hors’ d’oeuvres & beverages as we celebrated the newly refurbished gas station that was deeded to the Town of Gardnerville by the Douglas County Board of Commissioners in 2013. It has been five years and with the help of NDEP (the Petroleum Fund) and Douglas County (grants from CDBG) we are completing the renovation of the building. Gardnerville Station is located at 1395 Hwy 395 N, corner of Mission Street and Hwy 395 N.
We have, with many thanks to McGinley & Associates and BRAMCO Construction, finished the site cleanup phase of the project. This last round of work removed the remaining known contaminated soils on the site. A total of 675 tons of material was removed from the site, well over the anticipated contamination area by almost a factor of 4. Thank you to the state staff and board of the State Petroleum Fund for all the support getting this site cleaned up.
The large station canopy between the road and the building was removed allowing the contamination to be removed under the concrete pad
The Dube` Group finished the building renovation improvement plans,which the town submitted for a building permit in April. We will be installing an underground storm water detention system allowing the highway storm water to discharge into the new Hellwinkel channel. R O Anderson Engineering is working on the flood modeling of both the channel and the "S" curve area.
The bid for building renovation went out and Simerson Construction LLC is in the process of being awarded the bid. The State Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) will fund the building improvements and underground storage tank needed.
New Storm Drain Alignment off Hussman Avenue (West End)
We will be installing new storm drain piping for a newly aligned storm drain located on the west side field behind Hussman Ave. We will backfill and bury the existing drainage ditch, install a new manhole and provide rip rap outlet at the Cottonwood Slough.
Martin Slough Trail Amenities
The Martin Slough trail with trail amenities project is complete. The contractor installed concrete stairs to Chichester Drive for access, a new pedestrian trail ADA ramp, and a new pedestrian crossing at Chichester and Gilman Avenues at the existing bridge. The path continues along the westerly pond and connects to the path behind the middle school. There are trash cans, benches and picnic tables with canopies along the trail.
Martin Slough Trail
The State of Nevada is performing the environmental study and easement or land acquisition. This is what is holding up the project to date.
The Lumos & Associates engineering firm is working on the improvement plans for this project. We have met with the Kingslane HOA and discussed and coordinated the plans for the new wall along the highway. NV Energy plans are complete for a new meter and street lighting. NDOT is reviewing our proposed streetlight concept at the relocated crosswalk.
Highway 395 Crosswalk Upgrades
On 11/2/15, Lumos was awarded the engineering/surveying/materials testing and construction phase services. A study was needed for NDOT to review the viewshed corridor.
We have not received the architectural plans yet on this project. We anticipate putting this project out to bid once we receive the plans.
Recently Completed Projects
High School street (Maple street) Storm drain - February 2020

Hellwinkel Flood Channel / Pedestrian path from Toler to Gilman Avenue
Funded by State Question 1 Funds and Town funds
Hussman Drainage (South End)
Added a larger drainage pipe from Hussman to Cottonwood slough, allowing the stormwater to flow off of the street and gutter, reducing the constant flooding issue at the end of Hussman Avenue.
New curb, gutter, sidewalk, and street improvements in partnership with Trinity Lutheran Church's parking lot project. 1/2 Mill Street was re-graded and paved to raise the old curb and gutter up to create positive drainage in the street.
Douglas / Mill Street
ADA and sidewalk improvements were completed, which created compliant ADA access. Relocated the street signs at the back of curb and extended the sidewalk towards Highway 395 for a future project when the town can get the Mill Street crosswalk improvements complete. All these improvements helped divert storm water from Mill Street north along Douglas to reduce the stormwater flow down to Hussman Avenue.
