I-80 pavement work near Truckee
The state Department of Transportation alerts motorists to expect delays on Interstate 80 east of Truckee as work to groove pavement will require alternating lane closures from 6 a.m. Monday through Nov. 23. Additional workdays may be required after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. No work is scheduled on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. Alternating lanes of Interstate 80 from Hinton Road to the Acid Flat Bridge east of Floriston will be closed as the contractor increases surface friction by grooving the concrete pavement on the eastbound and westbound freeway lanes, Caltrans reports. Motorists are likely to experience traffic delays and are encouraged to plan for additional travel time through the area.
