Caltrans plans to open the 10-mile-long westbound bus/carpool lane on Interstate 80 in North Sacramento Friday morning.

Thursday night the finishing touches were being put on as the final striping work was being done.

The striping is scheduled to happen between Watt Avenue and the Sacramento River from 9 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday.

The westbound bus/carpool lane will open after that final work is done.

Crews will continue night work to complete the eastbound bus/carpool lane by mid-December.

This is part of the $136 million “80 Across the Top Project.”
