Motorists are encouraged to use Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway 50 as an alternate route around the construction work zone. Motorists choosing to use I-5 during the partial closures should expect delays and plan for additional travel time.
Motorists should be aware of commercial work vehicles traveling in and out of the area.
The speed limit has been reduced to 55 MPH through the construction zone 24/7. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) will be patrolling the project site ticketing motorists who are not adhering to the posted speed limit signs. The closures and speed-limit reductions are necessary for the safety of motorists and workers. Please “Be Work Zone Alert”
Nearby residents can expect loud construction and commercial truck back-up beeping noises during day and nighttime hours.
So far, crews have added sound walls in 2020 and will soon complete the new Casilada Pedestrian Overcrossing in 2022 and are now working to repair 67-lane miles of roadway, build 23 miles of carpool lanes, and improve the existing electrical and drainage systems along this corridor. The project is expected to be completed by summer 2022.
This $370 million project includes $48.3 million in funding from Senate Bill (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually split between the state and local agencies.
