Motorists traveling westbound on Interstate 80 should expect to encounter delays in the Truckee area on Wednesday, Sept. 27 because of ramp closures brought on by a paving project along the roadway.

The planned closure of Exit 184 from westbound I-80 to Donner Pass Road is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, the California Department of Transportation said in a statement.

"The on-ramp to westbound I-80 from Donner Pass Road will remain open," Caltrans said. "Motorists can continue on westbound I-80 to the next exit at Donner Lake Road to reverse direction and access Donner Pass Road from eastbound (I-80).

"Additionally, the on-ramps to westbound I-80 from Highway 89 and Highway 267 will be closed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28, for striping operations. Motorists can use an alternate route of eastbound I-80 to the Overland Trail / Union Mills Road (Exit 190) to reverse direction onto westbound (I-80)."

The project is expected to be completed Oct. 6.
