Nights of September 4 & 5:

  • US-50 Off-Ramps and On-Ramps:  From 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night, there will be intermittent closures of all US-50 interchange off-ramps and on-ramps. Closure periods for each ramp will last from 2 to 4 hours.  Once work on a specific ramp is completed, the ramp will be re-opened to motorists.
