If you use I-5 in north Los Angeles County, heads-up: the northbound I-5 Smokey Bear Road on- and off-ramps are closed through Friday, July 26, 2013, while crews place new concrete pavement. Instead of the Smokey Bear Road on-ramp, you may want to jump on northbound I-5 at Vista Del Lago. As for the off-ramp, Quail Lake Road and Gorman Post Road are your alternates. See the map below.
These closures are part of a project that’s rehabilitating the lanes and outside shoulders of I-5 in both directions from just south of the Vista Del Lago Road overcrossing to the Kern County Line, a distance of 15.4 miles.
