General Project Detour Information

Lane closures and detours are in place on Interstate 80 through the Carlin Canyon area. Westbound traffic is being detoured to the adjacent old highway U.S. 40, bypassing the under-construction tunnel area. Eastbound traffic will continue to travel through the eastbound tunnel that was upgraded last year. There is a short section of two way traffic on the east side of the tunnels, but westbound traffic is being moved over to the eastbound lanes. The detour is expected to add less than five minutes of travel time for each trip through the construction zone, with posted speed limits reduced to 55 miles per hour through most of the detour. There is a reduction to 35 miles per hour on two corners in bypass. Signage and traffic control devices are directing motorist throught the construction 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 vehicles.
