DID YOU KNOW? Pedestrian & Bike Improvements
The I-5 South Country project will include several improvements to pedestrian and bicycle facilities including:

  • New Class II bicycle lanes

La Paz Rd.
  • Standardized sidewalks in both directions

WHAT: Crews will be performing emergency bridge deck repairs of I-5 above the railroad tracks adjacent to the La Paz Rd. interchange. This work is not anticipated to require lane closures.

WHY: This emergency work must be performed for safety reasons.

WHEN: Work will be performed from 9:30 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday and is expected to continue for a couple of weeks.

WHAT TO EXPECT: As required by law, train conductors will blow train whistles and air horns to clear tracks of any construction crews up to a half-mile from the work site. Train horns are not regularly blown within the corridor but must be during this work for safety reasons. We apologize for the inconvenience.

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.
