Ramp Closures Expected to Impact Traffic in Truckee

Westbound ramp closures signal near completion of I-80 paving rehabilitation project

TRUCKEE – Caltrans is alerting motorists traveling on westbound Interstate 80 of the planned closure of Exit 184 from westbound I-80 to Donner Pass Road from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, September 26 – 27 for emergency pavement repairs. The on-ramp to westbound I-80 from Donner Pass Road will remain open. Motorists can continue on westbound I-80 to the next exit at Donner Lake Road to reverse direction and access Donner Pass Road from eastbound Interstate 80.

Additionally, the on-ramps to westbound I-80 from Highway 89 and Highway 267 will be closed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, September 28 for striping operations. Motorists can use an alternate route of eastbound I-80 to the Overland Trail / Union Mills Road (Exit #190) to reverse direction onto westbound Interstate 80.

Striping operations for the pavement rehabilitation project on westbound Interstate 80 indicate that the project is nearly complete. An October 6 completion date is anticipated.

Motorists should expect delays to occur during the closure periods. Motorists are cautioned to reduce speeds on areas of rough roadway and to use caution in and near work zones. Weather or other unexpected delays could postpone the work.
