State Route 759 (SR 759) is a short state highway in Douglas County, Nevada serving the county's airport facility.

Route description[edit]

State Route 759 begins at U.S. Route 395, approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) north of the town limits of Minden in the Johnson Lane community. From there, the highway heads east along Airport Road past some farm fields and businesses. After traveling about 1 mile (1.6 km), SR 759 ends at the intersection of Heybourne Road, in front of the main entrance to the Minden-Tahoe Airport.[1][2]

History[edit]

SR 759 was designated during the 1976 renumbering of Nevada's state highway system on July 1, 1976.[3] The change was first seen on state highway maps in 1991.[4]

Major intersections[edit]
