The closure is scheduled to go into effect on Friday, Oct. 30, according to the 80 Across the Top website.

Motorists planning to exit I-80 at Truxel during the three-week closure are advised to plan ahead for the detour or alternate routes and allow extra time.

Detour for eastbound I-80: Exit at Northgate Boulevard, take westbound I-80 to the Truxel exit.

Alternate routes from I-5:

  • Northbound I-5: Take W. El Camino Avenue exit.
  • Southbound I-5: Take Arena Boulevard exit.

The closure is part of a $133.3 million, multi-phase project will scheduled for completion by late summer 2016.
