The contractor is preparing to reopen the Rosecrans Avenue on and off-ramp to the southbound I-5 freeway in June. Before these ramps are open to traffic, crews must reconstruct portions of Rosecrans Avenue at I-5. This wok will require 24-hour closure of eastbound Rosecrans Avenue (between Bloomfield Avenue and Firestone Boulevard), from 9 p.m. Friday, May 15 to 9 p.m. Saturday, May 16. Motorists traveling east on Rosecrans Avenue will be detoured to turn right on Bloomfield Avenue, turn left on Alondra Boulevard, and turn left on Carmenita Road to reach Rosecrans Avenue. A similar closure of westbound Rosecrans Avenue is tentatively scheduled to take place the weekend of May 29-31; Additional information will be sent in advance of that work.
Also this weekend, crews are preparing to shift lanes of traffic on the southbound I-5 onto new pavement along the widened, outside portion of the freeway. Southbound I-5 freeway will be closed between Imperial Highway and Valley View Avenue, from 12:01 to 5 a.m. Monday, May 18, as crews restripe the freeway and install k-rail. Motorists will notice the new traffic pattern on Monday morning, May 18. In addition to the southbound I-5 full freeway closure, the southbound I-605 to southbound I-5 freeway connector will be closed from 11 p.m. Sunday, May 17 to 5 a.m. Monday, May 18l For more information, including recommended detour routes, please visit the project Google map.
