COLFAX — A Caltrans project on Interstate 80 will affect traffic east of Colfax.

The project will build a truck climbing lane that is three-miles long with standard 10-foot inside and outside shoulders, widen and replace the Cape Horn Undercrossing, construct 1,100-foot retaining wall at Magra Road, extend culverts and upgrade drainage facilities and relocate guardrail and safety barriers.

There will be lane closures scheduled from 6 p.m April 30 to 6 p.m. May 2 with the following details from CHP.
