New I-80 Overcrossings Improve Travel for Motorists, Pedestrians, Freight Carriers

California I-80 Overcrossing | I-80 Exit Guide

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced completion of a project to replace four aging I-80 bridge overcrossings in Placer County, improving travel for motorists, pedestrians, and freight carriers.

“Interstate 80 is a vital economic corridor with nearly $5 million worth of goods moving every hour along the route,” said Caltrans Director Tony Tavares. “These new bridges will greatly improve safety for local motorists, pedestrians and freight carriers traveling in the Sierra.”

Caltrans replaced the four I-80 overcrossings at Crystal Springs, Baxter, Drum Forebay and Cisco Grove to improve the condition of the concrete bridge decks and to construct 8-foot shoulders, 6-foot sidewalks and ramps that comply with Americans with Disabilities Act standards. Walsh Construction of Concord was the primary contractor on the project, which began in April 2021.
