Drivers should expect delays and plan accordingly, Caltrans says. As a detour to the North Interstate 5 to East Interstate 80 connector, drivers should continue north on Interstate 5 to the Arena Boulevard offramp and turn around to the South Interstate 5 to East Reno Interstate 80 exit.

Caltrns say this project will preserve and extend the life of the existing pavement and improve ride quality.
