On Tuesday night, Nov. 7 crews will close two inside lanes on southbound I-5, between I-605 and the Orr and Day railroad bridge (just south of Florence Avenue), from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. These lane closures are needed so crews can complete asphalt paving work in the freeway median.
Work is underway to construct the new sound wall along the northbound I-5 Florence Avenue on-ramp, adjacent to Longworth Avenue. Crews have completed a recent concrete pour along the north end of the wall, and have begun pouring the new northbound I-5 on-ramp.
A portion of the sidewalk on Longworth Avenue, adjacent to the northbound I-5, has been closed to accommodate sound wall reconstruction. A chain link fence has been installed to close this area of the sidewalk from public access through the end of 2017. The sidewalk will be restored once sound wall construction is complete. While the sidewalk is being reconstructed, the sidewalk across the street from this work is open and accessible for public use.
