Caltrans performed an extensive field review of the I-80 corridor earlier this year 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 for the repairs, totaling $69.2 million.

The extended lane closures will help to minimize the duration of the project, speed completion and improve workers’ safety. The climate in the area also provides a limited temperature window to perform the needed repairs.
