Portion of I-5 to close five nights over next two weeks
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.
