In July, crews completed a traffic shift along southbound I-5, between Rosecrans Avenue and Valley View Avenue, to realign traffic from the center lanes, to the newly completed outside lanes of the freeway. In addition to this traffic shift, the southbound I-5 Carmenita Road on- and off-ramps have been opened to traffic and South Firestone Boulevard has been realigned to its permanent configuration.

Finally, daytime work is ongoing behind k-rail in the center median to construct the new median barrier rail between Alondra Boulevard and Shoemaker Avenue on I-5.
