For any Houn Dawg fans traveling to Nevada for tonight’s football game. Due to some road construction in Nevada we have some road closures. They would advise you to take the Highland exit and go west on Highland to Ash St (.5 miles). Turn south on Ash then back west on Hickory St. (1 mile). In about .5 mile the school will be on your right.
