Crews are scheduled to continue work next week along I-80 between Troy and Soda Springs as part of the $97.2 million Soda Springs Pavement Rehabilitation Project. Lane and ramp closures are scheduled at various times during the day and night. Additional delays are also expected along I-80 between Monte Vista and Drum Forebay as construction begins on the $146.8 million Monte Vista Pavement Rehabilitation Project. Lane and ramp closures are scheduled at various times during the day and night.

The schedule is subject to change or be delayed due to weather, availability of materials or other unexpected events.

Caltrans performed an extensive field review of the I-80 corridor in 2023 and found an unprecedented amount of damage. Several areas exhibited moderate to high levels of rutting due to chain wear and required immediate repair. Five emergency contracts were executed in 2023 for the repairs, along with an additional four emergency contracts in 2024, totaling $107.4 million. The primary contractors are Teichert, Vanguard Construction, Dees Burke Engineering Constructors, Granite Construction, and Q&D Construction.

The extended lane closures will help to minimize the duration of the work and improve workers’ safety.
