Placer County – Caltrans is alerting motorists of the resumption of traffic-interfering work on a five-mile section of Interstate 80 (I-80) in western Placer County.

Lamon Construction Co. of Yuba City will be grinding down rough sections of pavement on I-80 between Douglas Boulevard in Roseville and Sierra College Boulevard in Rocklin. Heavy rains over the winter deteriorated the pavement in this area, and a $5.1 million emergency contract was executed for repair work. 

The contractor will perform grinding and paving work from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday night through Thursday night this week on sections of both eastbound and westbound I-80 in various lanes. Motorists can expect alternating lane and ramp closures. 

It is anticipated this work will continue for the next 5 to 6 weeks (weather permitting). The open-grade asphalt requires temperatures of 65 degrees and rising to be applied properly and the work will be done at night due to daytime traffic volumes.
Caltrans District 3 is responsible for maintaining and operating 4,385 lane miles in 11 Sacramento Valley and Northern Sierra counties. Check out Caltrans' QuickMap for current road conditions and chain requirements at or download the free QuickMap app on the App Store or Google Play.
