I-80 / SR 65 Interchange Improvement Project
The existing I-80/SR 65 interchange was constructed in late 1985. Because of the region’s growth over the past two decades, the interchange and the I-80 and SR 65 corridors are experiencing increasing traffic congestion. The high traffic demands during the commute hours and the recreational trips to the Sierras congest the project area on a regular basis. The I-80/SR 65 Interchange Improvements Project is intended to reduce traffic congestion, improve operations and enhance safety.
The Placer County Transportation Planning Agency (PCTPA) will host a third community workshop for the I-80/SR 65 interchange improvements project. PCTPA is starting the environmental assessment for this project and the Public Scoping Meeting is an opportunity for the public to provide comments or concerns. Input received will become part of the public record and will be considered in developing alternatives to be studied in the environmental document.
Representatives from PCTPA, Caltrans, and the project consultant team will be available to provide an overview of the project, the schedule, and will answer questions and discuss ideas in an informal format. Several information stations providing maps, aerial photographs, and other project materials will be available.
