The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is alerting motorists of temporary ramp closures affecting westbound I-80 traffic in Auburn.

The following ramps are closed through Wednesday, April 19 between 6:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m:

  • On-ramp from southbound State Route 49 to westbound I-80
  • Off-ramp from westbound I-80 to SR-49
  • On-ramp from Elm Avenue to westbound I-80

Concrete “k-rail” will be installed along the on-ramp from SR-49 to westbound I-80 as an additional barrier along with the guardrail. A review of crash data over the past 5 years showed there were multiple I-80 traffic collisions to the guardrail on the entrance ramp from southbound SR-49 to westbound I-80.

Highway message boards have been deployed by Caltrans throughout the area alerting motorists of the closures.
