NEVADA COUNTY – Caltrans is alerting motorists and truck drivers of anticipated delays on eastbound Interstate 80 this week from Boca to the Nevada state line for emergency guardrail repairs.

Maintenance crews will be replacing damaged guardrail between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. Interstate 80 eastbound lane reductions will be in effect during these periods for the safety of highway workers.

During guardrail repair periods, permit load trucks may expect delays on Interstate 80 from Boca to to the Nevada state line. Caltrans will be coordinating with the California Highway Patrol to safely guide permit load trucks through the work zone. Motorists should also anticipate travel delays in the area and slow for work zones.

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