I-80 Monte Vista Pavement Rehabilitation
In Placer County on Interstate 80 from 0.45 miles west of the Monte Vista Overcrossing (PM 42.7) to 0.3 miles east of the Drum Forebay Overcrossing (PM 49.3), this project proposes to preserve pavement by addressing existing pavement in fair and poor conditions. The project will also extend the life of existing drainage systems; install/upgrade Traffic Management System (TMS) elements; improve mobility by adding an eastbound truck climbing lane to achieve overall delay savings and improve traffic operations, upgrade concrete barrier, sign panels & overhead structures; widen/replace structures; evaluate and construct wildlife connectivity.
Purpose and Need:
The project will preserve and extend the useful life of the existing pavement along eastbound I-80. The project will also extend the life of drainage systems that are near the end of their service life, improve roadside lighting, upgrade nonstandard median barrier, and upgrade/replace/add TMS system in the eastbound direction. This project will evaluate the need for wildlife connectivity.
The project will also improve the safety, reliability, and freight mobility of this mountain segment of I-80.
