California I-80 emergency repairs |I-80 Exit Guide

Caltrans will monitor all I-80 delays to ensure the maximum delay will not exceed more than two hours. So far average delays are around 5 to 10 minutes for each location. 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 earlier this year and found an unprecedented amount of damage. Several areas exhibit moderate to high levels of rutting due to chain wear and need immediate repair. Five emergency contracts were executed for the repairs, totaling $84.4 million.

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

Caltrans reminds motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert” and slow in construction zones for the safety of travelers and crews performing these improvements.
