Southbound I-5 Ramp Closure in Gorman


If you use the Gorman School Road on-ramp to southbound I-5, this post is for you.
The ramp will be closed from July 13 to July 20 at night, 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. We’re closing the ramp so that crews can upgrade the pavement in the area. The work is part of a $100.1 million pavement improvement project between Vista Del Lago Road and the Kern County line. (More about the project here.)

We’ll sign the closure well in advance, so you can exit the freeway before you reach the closed ramp. We’ll also post a minimum of 10 detour signs along the detour route so you won’t get lost. On-ramps to southbound I-5 at Frazier Mountain Park Road and Quail Lake Road will be open.

For the safety of the construction crew and motorists, please slow for the cone zone, and move over one lane where possible.

Lane closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website here. You can also find info on the I-5 website, or give us a ring on the toll-free I-5 hotline: 866.454.6335.
