Bridge work continues in Placer County

The state Department of Transportation alerts motorists that they can expect intermittent full ramp closures for bridge work on Interstate 80 at the Newcastle Road overcrossing from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. every night from Monday through Saturday morning. The I-80 work is part of a $36 million project to increase the vertical clearance of nine bridges in south Placer County to 16 feet, 6 inches. The vertical clearance will be increased on seven structures by lifting the existing bridge deck, and the other two will have the roadway below dug down. Go to www.raise80.com for more information.
