I-80 Emigrant Pass to Eureka/Elko County Line

Approximately $14 million project to overlay I-80 from Emigrant Pass interchange to Eureka/Elko county line, including improved chain up areas and I-80/SR 306 Beowawe interchange.

Project is largely complete, with final paving scheduled for summer 2014.


I-80 Emigrant Pass to Dunphy

Approximately $14 million project to grind and rehabilitate the roadway surface and retrofit three sets of bridges.

As seismic bridge retrofits, roadway grinding and removal and replacement of concrete sections and drainage and guardrail improvements take place, motorists can expect reduced speeds, intermittent lane and shoulder closures, narrow lanes and traffic cross-overs.

Project scheduled to continue through 2014.


I-80 Oasis to Pilot Peak

Finishing work on approximately $31 million project to repave and improve I-80 from east of Oasis interchange to west of Pilot Peak interchange using cold in-place recycling (recycling/incorporating old pavement as part of new road surface), including retrofitting two bridges and completion of wildlife safety crossing to help reduce vehicle-wildlife collisions. Project is scheduled to complete in late 2013.
