The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is alerting motorists of scheduled traffic breaks, lane closures and delays along I-80 as crews continue emergency pavement repairs in Nevada and Sierra counties.

Crews are grinding existing wheel ruts in the slow lane and preparing the surface for a polyester concrete inlay during the next three weeks along westbound I-80 between the Nevada state line and Floriston starting Sunday, May 5 through Wednesday, May 22.

Due to the narrow width of the highway, work is scheduled with nightly traffic breaks between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Various lane closures will also be in place around the clock in order for the polyester concrete to properly set.

Motorists will experience delays during this timeframe and are encouraged to use alternate routes to minimize any inconvenience. The extended lane closures and traffic breaks will help to minimize the duration of the project and improve workers’ safety.

Work is not allowed during the weekends and no traffic restrictions will be in place between 5:00 p.m. on Fridays and 3:00 p.m. on Sundays. Crews will pause construction activities during the Memorial Day holiday weekend and are scheduled to resume repairs along eastbound I-80 between Mystic and the Nevada state line Sunday, June 2 through Friday, June 14.

The schedule is subject to change or be delayed due to weather, availability of materials or other unexpected events.
