Crews will shift the southbound I-5 lanes of traffic (between Pioneer Boulevard and the Silverbow Avenue pedestrian bridge), onto new pavement along the widened, outside portion of the freeway. In order to complete this shift, the southbound I-5 will be closed between Imperial Highway and Rosecrans Avenue on Friday morning, July 10 between midnight and 4 a.m.. Motorists will be detoured onto the southbound I-605, exit Rosecrans Avenue and turn left, proceed east on Rosecrans Avenue and take the Rosecrans Avenue on-ramp to get back on southbound I-5. In addition to this full freeway closure, the northbound and southbound I-605 connectors to southbound I-5 will be closed from 11:01 p.m. Thursday, July 9 to 4:59 a.m. Friday, July 10. For detailed closure and detour information related to this work, visit the project Google map.
The contractor is preparing to begin demolition activity of the old Imperial Highway, San Antonio Drive and Pioneer Boulevard bridges; this work may begin as early as next week, however an exact date has not been set. Demolition of the three bridges will take place during consecutive (not concurrent) nighttime shifts and will require the full closure of the roadway beneath each bridge. Additional information regarding this work, including related closures and detour information, will be provided as soon as it is available.
Work is under way on Union Street, between San Antonio Drive and Paddison Avenue, to complete the planned roadway improvements. Union Street is being widened, sidewalks will be reconstructed and the street will become a cul-de-sac adjacent to San Antonio Drive. Access for local residents will be maintained at all times. Construction activity is also ongoing with several sound walls along the northbound and southbound I-5. In addition, work continues on the frontage roads along the northbound I-5 (Adoree Street) and southbound I-5 (Southbound Frontage Road). Adoree Street is temporarily closed between Norwalk Boulevard and Kalnor Avenue; access will be maintained for local residents. Adoree Street will not be accessible from Norwalk Boulevard.
