FULL CLOSURE | EB SR-201 ON-RAMP AT I-80
On Friday, Sep. 27, 10 a.m. – Sunday, Sep. 29, 5 p.m., crews will implement a full closure of the EB SR-201 on-ramp at I-80 for bridge maintenance.

TRAFFIC SHIFTS AT SR-36 FLYOVER
Crews have implemented their first of multiple traffic shifts on the SR-36 flyover bridge as they complete final paving and striping activities. Drivers are advised to note changing traffic patterns and use reduced speeds through the work zone.
The bridge is expected to be fully open to traffic by late September. Crews will demolish the original bridge structure in late October.
Sign installation is scheduled for mid-September. Permanent striping and rumble strip installation is scheduled for mid-October. The newly added lane will be open to traffic in late September.
I-80 BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION
Crews will begin preliminary bridge construction activities in mid-October. The majority of work will be offline away from traffic; however, construction vehicles will be entering and exiting the work zone.
The Blackrock project is moving into a new phase of construction with the impending completion of the SR-36 flyover bridge and the start of construction on I-80.
A timeline of high-level construction milestones is below for your reference to help you plan ahead.
