The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is conducting several construction projects on Interstate 80 between Colfax, California and the Nevada State line. Actual project timelines may vary, but weather permitting construction will take place between March and November each year from 2009-2013. Improvements to I-80 include removal and replacement of worn roadway, rehabilitation of ramps, improving drainage, widening of shoulders and replacement of metal guardrails.
Caltrans will make every effort to limit impacts to the public caused by the construction. However, in order to preserve the safety of motorists and road crews, drivers may experience delays due to construction and/or rerouting of traffic may be necessary.
