I-80 will be closed to both directions of traffic between Battle Mountain exit 231 and Carlin exit 279 from 9 p.m. June 18 and 5 a.m. June 19. The closure date is subject to change.
Drivers should plan to avoid I-80 travel during the closure.
During the closure, the aging bridge over I-80 Emigrant Pass will be demolished. The bridge will be replaced with a wider, modern bridge to make way for a future truck climbing lane. A new nearly three-mile truck climbing lane will be constructed in the eastbound direction over Emigrant Pass. An approximate five-mile truck climbing lane was constructed last year in the westbound direction.
