SOUTHBOUND I-5 LANE REFRESH
Motorists traveling on southbound I-5 will 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.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
OCTA and Caltrans are working together to improve freeway capacity and operations on a 6.5-mile stretch of I-5 from SR-73 to El Toro Road in south Orange County. This voter-approved $580-million project will add a general purpose lane in each direction of the I-5 between Avery Parkway to Alicia Parkway, extend the second carpool lane from Alicia Parkway to El Toro Road in both directions, reconstruct two interchanges and one bridge, and modify on- and off-ramps. To further improve operations, carpool lanes in the project area will convert to continuous access. The project is expected to be completed in 2025.
