The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and Granite Construction will be switching the location of the I-80 Eastbound ramps in the downtown area from Keystone Avenue to the Spaghetti Bowl. The following ramps will be moved to the new concrete pavement beginning Sunday evening, June 2th:
I-80 Eastbound Keystone Avenue on-ramp
I-80 Eastbound Virginia Street off-ramp
I-80 Eastbound to US 395 Southbound and Northbound ramps
US 395 Northbound to I-80 Eastbound on-ramp
The changes are needed to complete the concrete paving on I-80 Eastbound from Keystone Avenue to Vista Boulevard.
To help drivers navigate the construction the design-build team recommends the following driver tips:
Pay Attention. There are new lane configurations between Keystone Avenue and Fourth Street. Watch for merging traffic.
Through Traffic Stay Left. Motorists driving east or west on I-80 should stay in the left lane.
Slow Down. The speed limit is 55 MPH and fines are doubled in work zones. NHP will be strictly enforcing the speed limit.
The estimated $72 million I-80 Design-Build Project includes pavement rehabilitation on approximately 40-year-old concrete between Keystone Avenue and Fourth Street, as well as installing Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), signing and striping, drainage and ramp improvements and landscaping and aesthetics enhancements on I-80 between Robb Drive and Vista Boulevard. The project is expected to complete in Fall 2012. Additional project information is available at KeepRenoSparksMoving.com, by phone at (775) 352-5444 or by e-mail at info@KeepRenoSparksMoving.com.
