For the first 10 miles or so in California, I80 mainly drops downhill slowly, then it becomes up and down for 30 miles or so. There are guide signs for truckers that say "crank up" or "easy going to Applegate" that tell truckers when to speed up or use engine brakes. This is part of the Lincoln Highway.
