I-80 Keystone to Stateline

Project Description

This important road improvement project will resurface both directions of I-80 between Keystone Avenue in Reno and the Nevada-California border. Approximately four inches of the roadway surface will be removed and repaved on more than 12 miles of interstate.

Project Benefits

The project will provide a smoother and safer interstate driving surface.

Safety

NDOT currently places “Wrong Way” signs on all interstate off-ramps to notify drivers errantly entering in the wrong direction. Additional flashing warning signals and detection systems will also be added to I-80 ramps west of Reno as a highly-visible indication to help stop drivers from entering the wrong way, ultimately enhancing freeway safety.

 

Several roadside shoulders will be widened providing space for emergency storage of disabled vehicles, enforcement activities and roadway maintenance.

Operational

Merge lanes will also be lengthened from West Fourth Street to westbound I-80 near Mogul and the Gold Ranch-Third Street exit to eastbound I-80, as well as select other exits.

Environmental

As part of NDOT’s dedication to preserving the quality of stormwater crossing state roadways, roadside drainage and water treatment features will be enhanced.

Schedule

Construction will primarily take place on westbound I-80 from Keystone Ave. to Gold Ranch this spring through November, followed by construction on the eastbound interstate throughout summer 2019.

Traffic Impacts

  • Beginning Sunday, May 13 through fall 2018, drivers will see intermittent overnight single lane closures on I-80 eastbound and westbound weekdays between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. with periodic evening and overnight ramp closures at Keystone Ave., McCarran Blvd. and Robb Dr. Consecutive ramps will not be closed at the same time.
  • While paving work will predominantly take place on westbound I-80 in 2018 and on eastbound I-80 in 2019, drivers should anticipate single lane closures in both direction of interstate during both construction seasons for drainage and other road improvements.
  • One lane of interstate will remain open in each direction during construction. Short-term overnight interstate ramp closures will also take place. Moderate travel delays are to be expected through the work zone.
Special Events

We love our special events and know how important they are to northern Nevada! When possible, NDOT will temporarily suspend work on road projects over major event periods for easier travel. Traffic control information impacting special event routes will be posted.
