Longworth Ave. residents north of Florence Ave: The rebar framework for much of the barrier along Longworth Ave. has been constructed and vertical rebar for the sound wall installed within that framework. Next, the concrete exterior of the barrier will be poured and the block construction of the sound wall may begin. Photos below from July 17: 

 

On the night of Sunday, July 15 northbound I-5 was closed to allow removal of the old freeway overhead sign north of Florence Ave. The sign is so large that it had to be cut in half. On Tuesday, July 17 the sign was loaded onto a truck for removal. It will be recycled for scrap metal (below):
