COLFAX ” If you commute on Interstate 80 at night, be prepared to enter a number of cone zones.

Starting this week, the California Department of Transportation will begin the first of eight Interstate 80 Sierra Repair Projects between Colfax and the Nevada State line. In 2009, eight projects totaling more than $420 million dollars will be repairing I-80.

To assist motorists traveling over the Sierra Nevada Mountains on I-80, Caltrans developed the GetAcross80.com public awareness campaign. Citizens are encouraged to call 1-877-362-8080 for recorded information or log onto http://www.getacross80.com.
