ROSECRANS AVENUE & BLOOMFIELD AVENUE BRIDGE PROJECT – Week of June 19, 2016

On Monday, June 20 and Tuesday, June 21, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., crews will alternate closing one lane in each direction on Firestone Boulevard (north of I-5) at Markdale Avenue, in order to remove a light pole and demolish a portion of the traffic island. The northbound I-5 Rosecrans Avenue on-ramp will remain open while crews complete this work.

On Tuesday night, June 21 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Wednesday, June 22, crews will close Firestone Boulevard (north of I-5) between Rosecrans Avenue and Markdale Avenue / Bloomfield Avenue to perform striping activity.

On Friday night, June 24 crews plan to perform a traffic shift along northbound I-5, to realign northbound traffic from the outside lanes of the freeway, into the newly constructed center lanes. This traffic switch will allow crews to demolish the old Rosecrans Avenue bridge. As part of this traffic switch, the northbound I-5 on-ramp at Rosecrans Avenue will close permanently; Firestone Boulevard (north of I-5) will also be closed from Rosecrans Avenue to the northbound I-5 on-ramp. The closure of the northbound I-5 Rosecrans Avenue off-ramp has been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.

The following full freeway closures and connector closures are planned next week as crews work to restripe the freeway and perform the traffic shift.
