3/10/2014 I-5 Freeway Widening Project

The final phase of the I-5 Freeway Widening Project between the SR 91 and the I-605 Freeways,otherwise known as Segment 5, which includes the portion of the freeway between the Norwalk city boundary and Florence Avenue but the work will actually extend north of the I-605 Freeway in order to properly transition with the existing travel lanes. The project involves the widening of the I-5 Freeway from eight to ten lanes and the replacement of the Florence Avenue overcrossing with a new bridge. In addition, Florence Avenue will be reconstructed between Studebaker Road and Orr and Day Road. The overall project duration is approximately 30 months. Please be advised that Florence Avenue will remain down to one to two lanes per direction for approximately 24 months. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes. Caltrans has designated Firestone Boulevard as the eastbound detour route and Telegraph Road and Slauson Avenue as the westbound detour routes. Please call the I-5 Project hotline at (855) 454-6335 for more information.
