NDOT I-80 WEST OF RENO: October 12, 2018 Update

Dear Stakeholder:
The project team is partnering with Gold Ranch Casino and Resort to provide customers with a complimentary 20-ounce cup of coffee or 20-ounce fountain drink at the 24-hour Sinclair convenience store when mentioning the I-80 West Project. Through the month of October, customers who say, “I-80 West Project!” will receive a complimentary coffee or fountain drink.

Construction Operations
Winter construction work will include draining improvements and “dig-outs.” A dig-out is when the contractor removes and replaces extra thick sections of pavement at bridge approaches and departures to ensure longevity. Often the roadway surface adjacent to bridges deteriorates sooner than the remaining roadway. This is a result of several factors including pavement thickness, moisture and movement from heavy trucks.
