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
  • Convert carpool lanes to continuous access
  • Reconstruct the Avery Parkway and La Paz Road interchanges
  • Widen the Los Alisos bridge
  • Modify various on- and off-ramps

The project, which spans the cities of Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, Laguna Hills and Laguna Niguel, is expected to be completed in 2025.
