COLFAX April 17, 2020 – Caltrans is announcing a new construction work schedule for the Interstate 80 Acceleration Lane project in Colfax beginning Monday, April 20.

Due to a reduction in traffic stemming from Governor Newsom’s shelter in place orders during the COVID-19 pandemic, construction crews will be permitted to work during daytime hours. Intermittent single-lane and I-80 westbound on-ramp closures now will be scheduled from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. The new work schedule is expected to remain in effect for the duration of shelter in place orders in California.

The $1.8 million project will extend the existing westbound Interstate 80 on-ramp from State Route 174 with a standard-length acceleration and merge lane. Project completion is still anticipated in late spring or summer 2020.
