FLORENCE AVENUE INTERCHANGE PROJECT – Week of May 29, 2016

Crews will close one lane in each direction along northbound and southbound I-5 from Florence Avenue to the I-605 transition, nightly between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., Tuesday, May 31 through Thursday, June 2. These nighttime lane closures are needed so crews can complete work in the center median and remove metal beam guard rail.

The most recent pile driving activity adjacent to the Florence Avenue interchange along northbound I-5, just south of the Florence Avenue bridge, has been temporarily completed. Crews also completed the most recent operation driving test piles along the southbound I-5 Florence Avenue on-ramp.

Work is underway along Dollison Drive and Orr and Day Road in Downey and Santa Fe Springs, to construct cul-de-sacs and/or realigning streets adjacent to northbound and southbound I-5. To complete this work, construction fencing will be repositioned to allow adequate room for the work area.

Crews are working to form soundwalls along northbound and southbound I-5. Roadway excavation is underway behind k-rail and the construction fencing, along Mondon Avenue between Cecilia Street and Buell Street. Over the next few weeks crews will be pouring concrete for the new soundwall adjacent to southbound I-5. This work will be conducted weekdays (Monday through Friday) between 6:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. and will be ongoing for approximately the next two to three weeks.

Finally, work is ongoing on the Orr and Day railroad bridge, which runs perpendicular to I-5, underneath the freeway, south of Florence Avenue.
