Ramp and street closures will take place throughout construction. These closures will also periodically involve the I-5 mainline lanes. Signs and detours will be posted to assist motorists. In addition, press release updates on closures will be distributed to the media, chambers of commerce and cities within the construction area – as well as posted on the City website (noted below) to keep the public informed as work progresses. Construction dates and closures are weather-permitting and subject to change.
The California Highway Patrol will assist with traffic management when necessary.
The City and Caltrans are aware of concerns regarding nighttime noise during construction and will do everything possible to keep the noise to a minimum.
