I-80 rest area closed for remodel

Caltrans will close the east and westbound Gold Run rest areas on Interstate 80 today for a construction project.

The rest area, approximately seven miles east of Colfax, will be closed March 31 through 2009. The contractor, Flintco Inc. from Folsom, will begin work on the $3.4 million project to remove the existing restroom buildings and construct new ones improving accessibility for all users as mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The project will also help maintain consistent levels of service, appearance and safety, according to a Caltrans release. Informational kiosks will also be renovated.

During construction, motorists can access the east and westbound Donner Summit rest areas located 36 miles east of Gold Run.
