The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is alerting motorists of the potential for extended delays along I-80 stretching between Colfax to the Nevada state line as several projects and emergency repairs get underway for the 2024 construction season.

Once all projects are active, delays across the corridor may reach up to a maximum of two hours. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes, if possible, to help reduce any potential delays. The schedule is subject to change or be delayed due to weather, availability of materials or other unexpected events.

Crews are returning to the same areas as last year for emergency wheel rut repairs and concrete slab replacements. Work is currently underway within between Colfax and Alta. Additional work is expected to resume this week, followed by other locations by the end of the April.

Additional projects within the corridor include the Monte Vista and Soda Springs pavement rehabilitation projects, and the Yuba Pass Separation overhead bridge replacement project. Crews will also replace the water lines at both the eastbound and westbound Donner Summit Rest Areas, which will require both facilities to be closed for the entire season.
