FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FLORISTON – Caltrans is advising motorists of upcoming alternating closures of the eastbound and westbound Interstate 80 off-ramps at Floriston for ongoing bridge work.
The eastbound and westbound off-ramps at Floriston will be closed intermittently between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. over the next few weeks for bridge joint reconstruction and polyester concrete overlay work. Work is scheduled as follows, although weather or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work.
- Tuesday, October 20 through Friday, October 23
- Monday, October 26 through Thursday, October 29
Motorists may also expect travel delays stemming from intermittent lane and shoulder closures at various highway bridges Truckee and Floriston. The work is part of a $6.6 million structure maintenance project to replace polyester concrete overlays and joint seals on 11 bridges on Interstate 80 from Alta to Floriston. The project will extend the life of the bridge decks by sealing them off to moisture and fix rutting in the concrete overlays caused by heavy freight and vehicle travel. Project completion is expected in spring 2021.
The department will issue construction updates on Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3. For real-time traffic, click on Caltrans’ QuickMap or download the QuickMap app from the App Store or Google Play.
