December 8, 2018 – Sierra Roadwork Schedule Sunday through Saturday, December 9, 2018 – December 15, 2018.
Interstate 80 (Placer County) from the Long Ravine underpass to just east of the Magra Road Overcrossing: Major roadwork for the winter is suspended on a $50.6 million project to construct a three-mile truck climbing lane on eastbound I-80 and make other improvements to the interstate just east of Colfax, including replacing and widening the Cape Horn undercrossing bridge. Other work including retaining wall and slope reconstruction may proceed during the winter season, weather permitting.
Interstate 80 (Placer County) at the Gold Run State Rest and Recovery Areas (SRRAs): The eastbound and westbound rest areas will be closed from May through mid-December to bring water delivery and waste water treatment systems into compliance with current state requirements. Construction of the new system, similar to other SRRA locations, will eliminate costs associated with septic tank systems and improve the potable water delivery system. Pending successful field testing of the waste water treatment system, the Gold Run SRRAs are tentatively scheduled to reopen December 19.
