Full closure of State Route 74 for maintenance paving project east of Rancho Mission Viejo

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Lake Elsinore Maintenance crew will be performing a paving project which will require a full closure for two days on State Route 74 (SR-74) near Rancho Mission Viejo.

The work will take place Saturday September 11th and Sunday September 12th from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., each day.

This operation will require the full closure of SR-74 Ortega Highway in both EB and WB directions between the Candy Store (Post Mile 2.87) and Grand Avenue (Post Mile 11.825). During the closure hours, crews will only allow residents access with proof of residency. Commuters will need to provide a valid driver license or I.D. to be escorted through the closure.
