Guardrail repair restricts lane on I-80 near Colfax

PLACER COUNTY — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is alerting motorists to expect delays on westbound Interstate 80 northeast of Colfax as work to repair damaged guardrails will result in delays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.

The right lane of Interstate 80 between Secret Town and Colfax will be closed for guardrail repairs and maintenance operations. Because there are only two lanes on this length of Interstate 80, the California Highway Patrol will be escorting traffic within the project boundaries to maintain motorist and Caltrans maintenance staff safety.

Motorists are advised to plan for additional travel time and prepare for delays. Weather or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work.

Caltrans advises motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert.” The department will issue construction updates on Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3. For real-time traffic, click on Caltrans QuickMap at:
