Caltrans crews will close the 5 Freeway in both directions between Valley View Avenue and Carmenita Road in south Los Angeles County for five nights over the next two weeks as part of a $110-million widening project on the busy freeway.

On Wednesday, the freeway will close from 11:59 p.m. until  4 a.m. Thursday, Caltrans said.

The closures will then continue nightly from April 16 through April 19, between 11:59 p.m. and 4 a.m.

Crews will be restriping lanes and placing concrete medians along the freeway, Caltrans said.
