Delays expected on I-80 through Truckee

Local motorists can expect delays between the Donner Lake undercrossing and Hirschdale on Interstate 80 as Caltrans is performing maintenance on the highway.

East and westbound No. 2 lanes will be closed from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7:30 to noon on Friday, according to Caltrans, but will not be closed on the weekend.

“We don’t allow work to happen unless there is an emergency on weekends in the summer,” said Shelly Chernicki, public information officer for Caltrans.

In regards to the $125 million project planned for I-80 in spring 2007, Chernicki said this work is not related.
