This post is about a project in neighboring Caltrans District 6, KERN County, which has an improvement project underway on I-5 that will impact traffic in north Los Angeles County and south Kern County next week near the community of Buttonwillow. We posted on July 3 about on-going work, and here's more information about next week's schedule.

If you're traveling I-5 in this area on Monday, July 9 through Friday, July 13, expect closures, delays and congestion.  If possible, please avoid the area or use US-101.   Here is the schedule:

·    Both lanes of southbound I-5 will be closed near the intersection of State Route 119 beginning at 6 pm Tuesday, July 10 until 6 am Wednesday, July 11. A detour will be in-place.

·    A 48-hour closure of the off-ramp from northbound I-5 to SR-58 will be in effect starting Monday, July 9 from 6 am until Wednesday, July 11 at 6 am.

·     A separate 48-hour closure of the transition ramp from SR-58 to northbound I-5 will be in effect beginning at 6 am Wednesday, July 11 until 6 am Friday, July 13.

For more information about the project, please call Caltrans District 6 Public Affairs: (559) 488-4038.  You can also call 511 or check out to get real-time traffic information and travel times.
