PRESS RELEASE

Caltrans is alerting motorists that two on-ramps and one exit ramp to and from westbound Interstate 80 in Truckee will be closed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, May 23 to 25, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to perform concrete grinding work on the ramps as well as freeway lanes. The on-ramps to westbound I-80 to be closed are from Highway 89 just north of the freeway, as well as the ramp from Donner Pass Road near the Coachland round-about. The off-ramp to be closed is the Central Truckee exit (#186) to Donner Pass Road.

The repair work will also require alternating lane closures of the #1 (left), #2 (middle), and #3 (right) lanes on WB I-80 between the Highway 89 interchange and the Central Truckee exit.

Motorists should anticipate local street congestion as well as delays on westbound I-80 resulting from the lane and ramp closures. Allowing for extra travel time is recommended.

Visit Caltrans’ QuickMap for current road conditions. A mobile version is also available. Motorists also can use the California Highway Information Network automated phone service by calling (800) 427-ROAD (7623).

Motorists are urged to be “Be Work Zone Alert” and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.” Caltrans will issue updates onTwitter @D3PIO and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict 3.
