Motorists traveling on southbound I-5
notice that night crews freshly restriped travel lanes from approximately La Paz Road to Oso Parkway, adjacent to the cities of Laguna Hills and Mission Viejo.
The new, temporary striping, which consists of six-inch white wide stripes bordered by two-inch black stripes, is intended to better lane continuity, enhance visibility and help offset glare common on bright, sunny days. As crews work on the freeway widening project, this temporary striping will be refreshed on an as needed basis. Permanent, thermoplastic striping will be applied to the roadway when the freeway improvement project is completed.
Thank you for exercising caution while driving through project area. Motorists are respectfully reminded of the strictly enforced 55 mile per hour speed limit within the construction zone. Traffic fines are doubled in a construction zone.
