The week of Sept. 17 crews will pour concrete in the center median of I-5 at Florence Avenue. In order to complete this work, crews will close the two inside lanes on I-5 from Florence Avenue to I-605, nightly, Wednesday, Sept. 20 through Thursday, Sept. 21, between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Crews have begun work to construct the new sound wall along the northbound I-5 Florence Avenue on-ramp, adjacent to Longworth Avenue. Crews hope to complete drilling CIDH (cast in drilled hole) piles along northbound I-5 this week. This operation will be conducted weekdays, between 6:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

A portion of the sidewalk on Longworth Avenue, adjacent to the northbound I-5, has been closed to accommodate sound wall reconstruction. A chain link fence has been installed to close this area of the sidewalk from public access through the end of 2017. The sidewalk will be restored once sound wall construction is complete. While the sidewalk is being reconstructed, the sidewalk across the street from this work is open and accessible for public use.
