This Week’s I-5 Lane Closures In Pyramid-Gorman Area

 The California Department of Transportation plans to close multiple lanes of the Golden State Freeway (I-5) in CalTransnorth Los Angeles County as part of a $100.1 million pavement improvement project between Vista Del Lago Road and the Kern County line.

Motorists should expect multiple simultaneous closures in different locations within the limits listed. Closures will be signed well in advance.

For the safety of the construction crew and motorists, please be attentive to closures, slow for the cone zone, and move over one lane where possible.

Closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website:http://www.lcswebreports.dot.ca.gov/lcswebreports.

Monday, October 8, to Saturday, October 13

* Northbound I-5 between Vista Del Lago Rd. and the Kern County line

One lane: One lane may be closed at any time.

Up to three lanes: 7 p.m. to 11 a.m. the following day

The most restrictive closures (i.e., the most lanes closed) will happen between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. when traffic volumes are lower.

* Southbound I-5 between the Kern County line and Vista Del Lago Rd.

One lane: One lane may be closed at any time.

Up to three lanes: 7 p.m. to 11 a.m. the following day

The most restrictive closures (i.e., the most lanes closed) will happen between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. when traffic volumes are lower.

 

About the Project

This project will replace slabs in both directions of I-5 between the Vista Del Lago Road overcrossing and the Kern County Line, a distance of 15.4 miles.

The two outside lanes and outside shoulder will be completely replaced, and damaged pavement slabs will be replaced in the inside lanes. Additionally, the project will update drainage features, upgrade the wooden guardrail posts to metal, add post mile signage, widen the inside shoulders, replace broken approach and departure slabs, and repave ramps.

This $100.1 million project, which will be completed in mid-2015, will extend the life of the pavement, reduce maintenance costs and closures, and provide a smoother ride for motorists. The contractor is Griffith/Coffman Joint Venture of Brea, Calif.

Most of the construction will be completed at night to minimize inconvenience to motorists, though there will be some work during the day.
