Pile driving activity has been completed on the Carmenita project. Over the next three weeks, there are currently no closures scheduled and work will be conducted during the daytime behind k-rail.
The weekend of Dec. 19 Union Pacific Railroad will be performing work on the tracks adjacent to Firestone Boulevard. This work will require a closure of Arctic Circle at Molette Street from 6 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 19 to 6 a.m. Monday, Dec 21. Businesses that may be impacted will be notified in advance of this work.
The intersection of Excelsior Drive and Carmenita Road is closed temporarily, while the intersection is reconstructed to tie in with the new bridge. Also, the northbound I-5 Carmenita Road off-ramp has been temporarily reconfigured. Motorists that exit northbound I-5 at Carmenita Road will be directed to turn right on Excelsior Drive, left on Spring Avenue and left on Pumice Street to access Carmenita Road. Click the map below for more information regarding the new off-ramp configuration.
As a result of the traffic shift onto the new Carmenita bridge, the traffic pattern at the intersection of Firestone Boulevard and Carmenita Road has been temporarily detoured; motorists exiting southbound I-5 at Carmenita Road will only be permitted to continue straight on Firestone.
