TRUCKEE – Caltrans is alerting Interstate 80 (I-80) westbound motorists to expect temporary overnight ramp closures in Truckee and travel delays between the Nevada state line and Farad for various maintenance activities.

The I-80 westbound loop on-ramp and acceleration lane from the Donner Pass Road Overcrossing will be closed from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday, May 15 and Monday, May 16. In addition, the nearby I-80 westbound on-ramp from Donner Pass Road may be closed intermittently during the same time period for heavy equipment staging. A contractor will be performing paving work, while maintenance crews clean culverts and repair roadway delineation.

From Tuesday, May 17 through Thursday, May 19, I-80 westbound motorists should also expect a #2 (right) lane closure from the Nevada state line to Farad nightly between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Maintenance crews will be repairing rockfall protection fencing, roadway delineation and guardrail, and clearing shoulder slides, highway drainage and culverts.
