I-5 FULL FREEWAY CLOSURE from Valley View to Carmenita

Caltrans will FULLY CLOSE the northbound and southbound Santa Ana Freeway (Interstate 5) between Valley View Avenue and Carmenita Road for one night in the cities of La Mirada and Santa Fe Springs. The full closure will take place overnight, Tuesday, April 17 from 11:45 pm - 4 am. The on-ramps at Valley View Ave, Alondra Blvd, and Carmenita Rd will close from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. the following morning.

From northbound I-5, motorists will be detoured off at Valley View Avenue and from southbound I-5, motorists will be detoured off at Carmenita Road. Crews and equipment will work in the center median between Valley View Avenue and the Alondra Boulevard Bridge. Detours will be posted. The detour shown below will be in effect during the Full Freeway Closure.

The work involves placing concrete median barriers (K-rail) and re-striping the lanes as part of the $110 million I-5 Widening and Alondra Boulevard Bridge Project. Caltrans is constructing one carpool lane and one general purpose lane in each direction from North Fork Coyote Creek Bridge to Marquardt Avenue, reconstructing overcrossings at Alondra Boulevard and North Fork Coyote Creek, and realigning and upgrading adjacent frontage roads.
