The California Highway Patrol also will do rolling traffic blocks when the girders are being lifted into place. The work is expected to be completed by 3 a.m. Tuesday morning.

The project, which began in 2016, is constructing a 3-mile truck climbing lane on eastbound I-80 with standard 10-foot inside and outside shoulders, replacing the Cape Horn Undercrossing, constructing a 1,100-foot retaining wall separating Magra Road from I-80 and making drainage improvements. Completion is expected in December.
