On Friday, June 17, crews plan to open the full width of the Carmenita Road bridge to traffic. In addition, crews are working to open the northbound on- and off-ramps at Carmenita Road at the same time. Additional information will be provided as this date nears.

The intersection of Excelsior Drive and Carmenita Road has been closed temporarily for the last several months, while the intersection is reconstructed to tie in with the new bridge. Crews anticipate being able to reopen the intersection on Friday, June 17.

The northbound I-5 Carmenita Road off-ramp was temporarily reconfigured while crews are finishing construction of the new permanent off-ramp, which is expected to open by Friday, June 17. Until then, motorists that exit northbound I-5 at Carmenita Road will be directed to turn right on Excelsior Drive, left on Spring Avenue and left on Pumice Street to access Carmenita Road. Click the map below for more information regarding the new off-ramp configuration.

As a result of the traffic shift onto the new Carmenita Road bridge, the traffic pattern at the intersection of Firestone Boulevard and Carmenita Road has been temporarily detoured; motorists exiting southbound I-5 at Carmenita Road will only be permitted to continue straight on Firestone Boulevard.

The temporary southbound I-5 on-ramp at Carmenita Road has closed permanently and the new on-ramp is expected to open later this year. In the interim, motorists will be directed to continue on Firestone Boulevard, turn left on Alondra Boulevard, then turn right on Valley View Avenue to access the southbound I-5 on-ramp. For detailed closure information, including recommended detour routes, please visit the project Google map.
