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 District 3 is responsible for maintaining and operating 4,385 lane miles in 11 Sacramento Valley and Northern Sierra counties. Caltrans reminds motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert” and slow in construction zones for the safety of travelers and crews performing these improvements.
