Without a bit of luck, it is impossible to cross the construction area in daylight. We were told the crews do not work on Sunday, and the road is open. We left Abancay Sunday morning, and found work being done in several places. There were some delays, but not too bad. While waiting, we confirmed the crews work until mid-day on Sunday, and the roads are completely open (unobstructed) for the remainder of the day.
So, you should be able to leave Cusco on Sunday morning, arrive in Abancay around lunchtime, then follow towards Nazca. The going may be slow, but you can make it to the next town (forgot the name) within a couple of hours, spend the night, and reach Nazca Monday afternoon....
