I-80 pavement repair east of Truckee

The state Department of Transportation advises motorists that pavement repair work is scheduled for a section of westbound Interstate 80 east of Truckee on Friday and Saturday. A Caltrans contractor will be grinding off rough patches of asphalt in the westbound No. 2 and No. 3 lanes from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. According to Caltrans, work is not expected next week due to storms in the forecast, but will continue over the next two months over a 10-mile stretch from just west of Boca to Donner Lake.
