Valley View Avenue Interchange
In mid-November of 2016 Caltrans began construction on the Valley View Avenue Interchange Project, which will add a High Occupancy Vehicle and mixed-flow lane in each direction along approximately one and a half miles of I-5 at Valley View Avenue, from Artesia Boulevard undercrossing to North Fork Coyote Creek. The project extends through the cities of Buena Park, La Mirada, Cerritos, and Santa Fe Springs.
Three bridges will be reconstructed: the Valley View Avenue Bridge at I-5, the North Firestone Boulevard Bridge over Coyote Creek, and the I-5 freeway bridge at Coyote Creek. Lanes will be kept open on the Valley View Avenue Bridge during construction. There will also be improvements to the interchange at Valley View Avenue and adjacent frontage roads. The new bridge will include a railroad overpass.
Construction on this project is 37% complete.
Completion of first half of Valley View Ave. Bridge: Revised to *late 2019.
Completion of second half of Valley View Ave. Bridge: Revised to *late 2021.
Completion of entire I-5 Valley View Ave. Interchange project: Revised to *late 2021.

There are currently three sections of the first half of the Valley View Ave. Bridge under construction:
- One section crosses over I-5 in Santa Fe Springs. Final concrete was poured on the deck on the night of November 8. Photos below are from before the pour on October 30 and after the pour November 27:
- A second section crosses over Arbor Pl. in Cerritos. The final layer of concrete has been poured on this section and most of the falsework has been removed from the sides. Photos below:
- A third, middle section will cross over the railroad tracks. Crews have completed constructing most of the falsework (temporary structure support). Photos below:
- Workers have been constructing the stem walls along the side of the bridge deck and marking a layout to place a horizontal grid of rebar on the soffit (underside) of the deck. Photos below from March 19:
- We are reconstructing two bridges side-by-side over Coyote Creek east of I-5 near Trojan Way in La Mirada. One bridge will carry new lanes of Firestone Blvd. and one will carry the new lanes of I-5. On March 14 the contractor poured the final layer of concrete on the deck of the bridge. The concrete is now covered with tarps to allow curing. Photos below from March 14 and March 19:
