Nevada County – Extended Interstate 80 (I-80) ramp closures between Kingvale and the Nevada state line are continuing next week for paving work.

A $2.4 million project is addressing deteriorated interstate on- and off-ramps at various locations in Nevada and Placer counties. Ramps throughout the Sierra corridor may be closed intermittently for paving, joint sealing, striping and concrete curing time.

Motorists are advised to use signed detour routes for I-80 travel during the temporary ramp closures. The schedule is subject to change based on weather, availability of equipment or other unexpected events.

On- and off-ramps at the below locations may be closed intermittently overnight between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday, June 26 through Friday, July 1.

  • Kingvale – Eastbound ramps
  • Soda Springs – Westbound on-ramp
  • Castle Peak/Boreal Ridge – All ramps
  • Donner Summit Rest Area – Westbound ramps
  • Interstate 80/State Route 89/State Route 267 interchange – Eastbound ramps
