Interstate 80 (I-80) is an east–west Interstate Highway in northern California, Nevada, and Utah in American Truck Simulator. It runs the long distance from The Embarcadero in San Francisco to Interstate 84 and US 189 east of Salt Lake City, near the Wyoming state line.

In real life, Interstate 80 runs from San Francisco to Teaneck, New Jersey. It is the second-longest Interstate Highway in the United States and the tenth longest highway in the world, after Interstate 90.

There is one toll gate on Interstate 80, charging vehicles crossing from Oakland to San Francisco over the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge. This toll costs $25 to go through. There is no toll to leave San Francisco.

Course[]

Interstate 80 begins at a T-intersection with The Embarcadero of San Francisco. It starts its transcontinental run by looping onto the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge, which consists of two differently-designed spans separated by stacked tunnels through Yerba Buena Island (eastbound traffic travels underneath westbound traffic). On the east side of the bay, after passing the westbound toll gate in Oakland, the highway runs concurrent with Interstate 580 for a short distance, this concurrency terminating near SR 4. After intersecting with SR 37, the highway turns east into the Sacramento Valley, where it passes through the north end of the city of Sacramento and intersects with Interstate 5. Once past the state capital, the highway progresses to the Sierra Nevada via Donner Pass (7227 ft), reaching the town of Truckee just east of the pass' summit. Shortly after a westbound weigh station, the road bends north/south as it approaches Nevada.

In the brief north/south section, there is a truck stop for each side of the highway after crossing the Nevada border. Interstate 80 then curves back to its initial east/west direction. The highway leads into Reno, where it intersects with US 395 and Interstate 580. After leaving Reno, the highway begins its long course across the Great Basin, a route across the vast, mountainous desert that closely follows that of the California Trail. East of Reno the highway trends north, and comes across an eastbound weigh station. At the end of this long, northeast span the highway meets the first exit in 273 miles, for the town of Winnemucca and US 95. Then the highway begins running alongside the Humboldt River as it leads to Battle Mountain and NV 305, where a small gas station is provided, and soon after crosses the Humboldt twice at the Carlin Tunnels (which, in the game, are significantly further west than in reality). Continuing east, Elko and NV 225 are reached, and after passing east and westbound weigh stations the highway passes Wells and US 93. Out of Wells the highway appears to cross the Toano Range via Silverzone Pass (5940 ft), and descends to the state line town of Wendover and US 93 Alternate.

At Wendover the highway enters Utah where, after east and westbound Weigh Stations, it crosses the white, flat expanse of the Great Salt Lake Desert, a minimalist landscape notable for the land speed records set here. Leaving these salt flats, the highway skirts the northern edge of the Cedar Mountains, where the chimney of the Kennecott Smelter (an Avalanche Steel facility) can be seen. This smokestack, at 1215 ft (370 m), is the tallest free-standing structure in the American West and the fourth-tallest chimney in the world. After passing the smelter the highway enters Salt Lake City, Utah's capital and largest city, where it intersects with Interstate 15. The highway leaves the city via Parleys Canyon, one of the few highway routes across the historically daunting Wasatch Mountains, and meets with US 40 and 189 at Silver Summit, this being the former's western terminus. Past this summit, the highway descends into the valley of the Weber River, which features overlooks by the Echo Reservoir, and currently ends at the eastern terminus of Interstate 84, where I-80 continues east into Wyoming.

It's worth noting that I-80 between Sacramento, CA, and Fort Bridger, WY (near Little America), closely follows the route of the California Trail by way of the Hastings Cutoff, a mid-19th century wagon route traveled by migrants that wished to settle in the bountiful lands of California. This route was notably taken in 1846 by the infamous Donner Party, the namesake of Donner Pass.

History[]

Map of Interstate 80 in the San Francisco Bay Area in the initial version of the game.

  • In update 1.5, which changed the map scale from 1:35 to 1:20, the section of Interstate 80 from Oakland to SR 37 was added. Between Sacramento and Wells, new sections, including Donner Pass, were added to the existing route to accommodate the new map scale. In Reno, the diamond interchange with Interstate 580 and US 395 was changed to a "Spaghetti Bowl" junction.
  • In update 1.32, the diamond interchange with Reed Avenue in Sacramento was changed to a folded diamond interchange, and the cloverleaf interchange with Interstate 5 was changed to a cloverstack interchange.
