Surprisingly, Nevada is the 7th largest state in the country by square miles. Nevada is almost 500 miles long and more than 420 miles wide. The state operates more than 87,000 miles of roadway, a relatively small amount given the expanse of the state. That’s because the federal government owns nearly 80% of the land in Nevada.
