ROSECRANS Ave & BLOOMFIELD Ave Bridge Project – Week of October 2, 2016

Crews will close N. Firestone Boulevard, between Rosecrans Avenue and Bloomfield Avenue/Markdale Avenue, intermittently between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., Monday, October 3 through Friday, October 7. These closures are needed as crews complete the construction of the new soundwall.

There are no scheduled closures at Rosecrans Avenue this week. Nightly closures, in both directions underneath I-5, will resume next week Monday, October 10 through Friday, October 14. 

On September 16 crews closed the northbound I-5 Rosecrans Avenue off-ramp for approximately three to four months. This closure is needed as crews continue construction to widen the I-5 freeway; the ramp must be reconstructed and realigned in order to accommodate the newly widened freeway. The closure area is shown on the map below in red; motorists will be directed to exit Carmenita Road and turn right, then proceed straight on Carmenita Road to access Rosecrans Avenue. The detour route is highlighted in green. Detour signs will be posted to direct motorists. For additional information regarding these closures, please see below or visit the project Google map.


Pile driving activity is underway adjacent to northbound I-5 near Rosecrans Avenue. This work will be conducted 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. Pile driving activity is needed as crews construct structure foundations for the new retaining walls and soundwalls in the project area. Please be advised this work may be loud and disruptive due to equipment noise, vibration and pounding related to pile driving activity.
