Town of Truckee: Expect delays as work begins along Donner Pass Road

TRUCKEE, Calif.and#8212; Town officials are alerting residents to expect delays next Tuesday as construction crews begin repaving Donner Pass Road from the intersection of Cold Stream Road eastward to the intersection of Bridge Street in downtown.

Todd Landry, a senior engineer with the town of Truckee, said it will be the first major repaving project since 1998 and will cost the town about $1.8 million, plus an additional $75,000 should a smaller section from Spring Street to the McIver Crossing roundabout be included.

Landry said the first priority goes to working on utilities, with work zones being moved throughout the day and into following weeks as Advanced Asphalt, the local company that was awarded the project, begins preparations for the paving and grading.

While the duration of the project is expected to last until late October, Landry said delays will diminish as work progresses.

He said he anticipates grinding and paving will be done during the night and morning hours, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., to prevent traffic build-up.
