Rosecrans Avenue and Bloomfield Avenue Bridge

Start Date: 2012
Completed: Late 2017

Cost: $180 Million

Project Overview

The Rosecrans Avenue / Bloomfield Avenue Bridge Project was the third in a series of six construction projects to widen the I-5 South Corridor by adding one High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lane and one general purpose lane in each direction from the Orange County line to I-605. The Rosecrans Avenue / Bloomfield Avenue Bridge Project extends through the cities of Norwalk and Santa Fe Springs. In addition to the widening of I-5, project improvements include widening and reconstructing the Rosecrans Avenue undercrossings, the Shoemaker Avenue overcrossing, the Silverbow Avenue pedestrian overcrossing and construction of a new undercrossing at Bloomfield Avenue. For the first time since 1954, the Bloomfield Avenue undercrossing allows motorists to pass underneath I-5, connecting communities and improving mobility for local residents.
