Schedule: Spring 2009 to Fall 2009

Rehabilitation of Interstate 80 from just east of the State Route 174/80 junction to the Alta Road under-crossing. This project will rehabilitate 44 lane-miles of severely distressed pavement. The benefits are improvement of ride quality, reduction in travel delays due to repeated lane closures for pavement repairs and reduction in state worker exposure for maintaining the pavement. The minimum pavement design life will be 20 years.

2. Nyack Rehab (Completed)

Schedule: February 2008 to Fall 2009

Repaving of the existing freeway with 12 inches of Portland Cement Concrete from the chain-on area to Nyack. Unpaved portions of the median will be paved and median barrier added. The Putts Lake under-crossing structure will be replaced. The project also includes upgrades to the Nyack and Emigrant Gap on and off-ramps, rehabilitation of the drainage systems and rehabilitation of the Vista Point at Emigrant Gap. This project will rebuild this vital artery by replacing its aging pavement and improving safety by upgrading roadway facilities to present-day standards.

3. Emigrant Gap

Schedule: Spring 2010 to Fall 2013

Resurfacing and restoration of roadway along Interstate 80 in Placer and Nevada Counties from Carpenter Flat under-crossing at the Emigrant Gap Interchange to Hampshire Rocks at the Rainbow Interchange. The project will repair 42.75 lane-miles of severely distressed pavement, extending the serviceable life and helping maintain structural integrity of the roadway, improving ride quality and reducing the delay to motorists due to repeated lane closures for pavement repairs and reduction in state worker exposure for maintaining the pavement. This project will improve the roadway surface for over 42 miles of I-80 and improve safety by upgrading median barriers and installing cable net drapery on the westbound slopes.

7. Donner I (Completed)

Schedule: October 2007 to Fall 2010

Placement of a Portland Cement Concrete overlay on the mainline traveled way and shoulders from the Donner Lake under-crossing to West Truckee. This project will rehabilitate 6.4 lane miles of pavement, upgrade drainage system and repave the vista point east of Donner Lake. This section of highway experiences the highest snowfall of any Interstate in California and chain usage has caused extensive wear of the pavement surface. This project will rebuild this roadway by replacing its severely distressed pavement while improving safety by upgrading roadway facilities to present-day standards.

8. Truckee River Canyon (Completed)

Schedule: Spring 2009 to Fall 2011

Rehabilitation of the pavement on Interstate 80 within the Truckee River Canyon, starting in Nevada County and ending in Sierra County at the Nevada State Line. The project proposes removal and replacement of the existing roadway structural section with Portland Cement Concrete; replacement of metal beam guardrails, replacement of the existing median barrier, rehabilitation of critical drainage systems and providing treatment of storm water, as necessary. Subsurface water under the westbound lanes will be intercepted along the base of the cut slopes with drainage ditches, as needed. This project will rebuild this severely distressed roadway by replacing its aging pavement while improving safety by upgrading roadway facilities to present-day standards.
