The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is alerting motorists that the I-80 traffic westbound on-ramp at Atlantic Street and the #4/5 (right) lanes on mainline I-80 will be closed nightly from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. on Monday, May 16 and Tuesday, May 17 for construction activities. Atlantic Street/Eureka Road motorists will be detoured along Harding Boulevard or North Sunrise Avenue to Douglas Boulevard to access I-80 westbound during the overnight ramp closures. Weather or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work.
Construction activities are part of a $12 million project to expand the width of the single-lane Atlantic Street/Eureka Road/Interstate 80 westbound on‐ramp to three lanes and to replace the existing Miner’s Ravine Bridge to support the newly widened roadway. The project will reduce significant traffic backup and improve the operation of local streets and intersections.
Caltrans reminds motorists to Be Work Zone Alert and slow in construction zones for the safety of travelers and crews performing these improvements.
