Carlin Tunnels Project Detours
Your ability to get where you need to go on Interstate 80 is
important. NDOT provides the following information to help you during
construction of the Carlin Tunnels Project.
Live Project Traffic Cameras
As construction ends for the season on
November 27, traffic traveling westbound on I-80 will no longer be detoured to
the adjacent old highway (U.S. 40). All traffic will shift to travel through
the tunnels until construction begins again in spring 2014.
General Project Detour Information
When construction is in effect, detours will be set
up to provide the quickest and safest travel through the project.
Signage and traffic control devices will easily direct motorists through
the construction area.
The detour is expected to add less than five
minutes of travel time for each trip through the construction zone.
Posted speed limits will be reduced from 75 miles per hour to 55 miles per
hour, or less as needed, for traveler safety through the project area.
Construction Bicycle Access
During construction, bicycle traffic will be
escorted through the project site. The traffic control supervisor will post
signage on each end of the project to help cyclists navigate through the
construction area safely. Depending on construction work being conducted at
the time, the contractor may also shuttle bicyclers through the project in
