The city of Santa Fe Springs is widening Florence Ave. east of I-5 from Orr & Day Rd. to Pioneer Blvd. This will match the number of lanes on our new Florence Ave. Bridge when complete. This is not a Caltrans project. For more details and contact information see below and go to: https://www.santafesprings.org/cityhall/public_works/florence_avenue_widening_project.asp

The Florence Ave. on ramp to northbound I-5, and the Florence Ave. off ramp from northbound I-5 will all remain closed until the second half of the Florence Ave. Bridge is complete. This is per request by the cities of Downey and Santa Fe Springs, to minimize traffic congestion until the three additional bridge lanes are provided to handle the increase in vehicles. Construction of the second half of the bridge is underway.
