NEVADA COUNTY – Parking lot paving of the Interstate 80 Donner Summit Safety Roadside Rest Areas (SRRA) will begin Friday, May 15 and continue Saturday, requiring closures of the rest areas.

Following pavement grinding work earlier in May, maintenance crews are scheduled to pave the eastbound and westbound parking lots from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday. The rest areas will be closed concurrently to expedite work. The eastbound Donner Summit rest area will also be closed Saturday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. to finish necessary maintenance work.

During the Donner Summit rest area closures, the Gold Run rest areas along Interstate 80 will remain open for motorists and truckers.

Weather or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work. Caltrans advises motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert.” The department will issue construction updates on Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
