Beginning as early as mid-December, crews will close N. Firestone Boulevard from Rosecrans Avenue to Bloomfield/Markdale Avenue. Residents in the area will maintain driveway access. This closure is dependent on utility crews removing a pole in the construction area. Once the pole is removed and a closure date is confirmed, residents and businesses in the surrounding area will be notified.
Crews will close N. Firestone Boulevard, between Rosecrans Avenue and Bloomfield Avenue/Markdale Avenue, intermittently between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., Monday, December 5 through Friday, December 9. These closures are needed as crews complete the construction of the new soundwall.
Rosecrans Avenue will be closed intermittently to all through traffic (motorists and pedestrians) in both directions underneath I-5, nightly between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., Monday, December 5 through Friday, December 9. These closures are needed as crews begin pouring columns and installing falsework on the Rosecrans Avenue bridge. Rosecrans Avenue closures will continue intermittently for the next two to four months.

Pile driving activity is underway adjacent to northbound I-5 near Rosecrans Avenue. This work will be performed intermittently for the next several months, Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. As this work is underway, flaggers will be on site to direct traffic, while crews transfer piles from the contractor’s yard onto the construction site. While transferring piles, portions of Bloomfield Avenue, between Rosecrans Avenue and Markdale Avenue may be temporarily blocked during the daytime.
