Project Update

  • Drivers can expect shoulder and periodic lane closures over the next several months between mileposts 94 – 96 on east and westbound I-80. Construction traffic will be entering and exiting work areas during the business hours of 7:00am – 5:30pm. Drivers with oversized loads are advised to use caution in this area.
  • Shoulder and lane closures are being put into place to provide safe access for vehicles hauling roadway material.
  • Crews have begun placing fill dirt along I-80 where the new interchange will be built. This will need to settle — along with the ground beneath it — to provide a solid foundation for new interchange bridges. This settlement process will likely last through 2020, so most new construction work will take place in 2021 when the interchange work can begin in earnest.
