NORTHBOUND I-5 – NIGHTTIME FULL-FREEWAY CLOSURE: 

On Friday, February 21 and Saturday, February 22, crews will fully close the northbound I-5 freeway between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. DETOUR: From the northbound I-5, exit Ortega Highway. Proceed through the intersection and re-enter the freeway on the sequential Ortega Highway on-ramp to the northbound I-5.  Crews will continue to perform the full-nighttime closures on the over the next three weekends in order to remove falsework from the south half of the bridge.  The full-freeway closures will take place on Friday and Saturday nights beginning Friday, February 21 and will conclude on Saturday, March 8. After crews remove falsework over the northbound I-5 they will proceed to the southbound I-5, both sides of the freeway will not close simultaneously.

Pile driving is expected to begin in late-February on the I-5 southbound off-ramp at Ortega Highway. This activity will take place on weekdays between 6:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Pile driving is necessary to reconstruct the off-ramp and will last intermittently for approximately one month.
