Full freeway closure on southbound I-5 between El Toro Rd. and Alicia Pkwy August 8 and 10, 2022

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) in partnership with the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) will be conducting a full freeway closure on southbound I-5 between El Toro Road and Alicia Parkway. The first closure will begin Monday night, August 8, 2022, from midnight to 5 a.m. Tuesday morning. The second closure will begin Wednesday night, August 10, 2022, from midnight to 5 a.m. Thursday morning.

  • Lanes will be reduced beginning at 9 p.m. and full closure will begin at midnight to 5 a.m.
  • The NB I-5 freeway will remain open.
  • Detour signage will be in place to assist motorists.
  • Please obey all posted signs and traffic instructions for the safety of all workers and motorists.

The closures are part of the ongoing work to deliver and install concrete girders. The girders are a structural component of the I-5 improvements at Los Alisos Boulevard and are roughly 126′ long, weighing almost 166,000 lbs. Due to the size and weight, a
specialized crane will be used to place the girders.

Caltrans appreciates the public’s patience while we perform this work. Electronic Changeable Messages Signs will notify drivers of the closure. The work schedule is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials, and/or construction-related issues.
