Two lanes of Interstate 5 will be closed in both directions Thursday and Friday evening in the Santa Fe Springs area between Valley View Avenue and Norwalk Boulevard/San Antonio Drive Changing and installing overhead signsannounced the California Department of Transportation.
In particular, the closures on Friday evening overlap with the rush hour.
The closures will be moved from location to location as the work progresses, but are expected to begin around 8 p.m. Thursday on I-5 northbound on Carmenita Road. In various places people work until 5 a.m.
On Friday, road work and lane closures are expected to begin at 7 p.m. on southbound I-5 at Valley View Avenue.
Caltrans recommends a detour via State Route 91, which runs east-west, and Interstate 605, which runs north-south.
According to Caltrans Public Information Officer Marc Bischoff, the work is part of the $640 million Interstate 5 Valley View Interchange Project, which broke ground in November 2016.
The goal is to add an HOV and mixed lane in each direction along a 1.5 mile stretch of Freeway 5 at Valley View Avenue from the Artesia Boulevard underpass to the North Fork of Coyote Creek in La Mirada.
Separately, an 11-mile stretch of I-5 will be closed overnight from 11 p.m. through February 11 for pavement repairmostly between Hollywood Way and Roscoe Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley.
