Florence Avenue Bridge Lane Reduction at I-5

Florence Avenue bridge at I-5 (between Orr and Day Road and Fairford Avenue) has been reduced to one lane in each direction. The Florence Avenue on-ramp to northbound I-5 has also been close for approximately two years. The Florence Avenue bridge is being reconstructed one half at a time to accommodate the widening of I-5 below the bridge.

The diagram below outlines the first stage of bridge construction (which will take approximately nine to 12 months to complete), including the temporary lane configuration, related ramp closures, and pedestrian access.
