The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is alerting motorists of the resumption of traffic-interfering work on a five-mile section of Interstate 80 (I-80) in western Placer County.

Workers will be grinding down rough sections of pavement on I-80 between Douglas Boulevard in Roseville and Sierra College Boulevard in Rocklin. Heavy rains over the winter deteriorated the pavement in this area, and a $5.1 million emergency contract was executed for repair work. 

The contractor will perform grinding and paving work from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Monday night through Thursday night this week on sections of both eastbound and westbound I-80 in various lanes. Motorists can expect alternating lane and ramp closures. 

It is anticipated this work will continue for the next 5 to 6 weeks (weather permitting). The open-grade asphalt requires temperatures of 65 degrees and rising to be applied properly and the work will be done at night due to daytime traffic volumes.
