Authorities announced plans to partially close a section of the northbound Santa Ana (5) Freeway in the La Mirada area beginning on Monday for roadway upgrades.
The closures will allow crews to re-stripe and shift traffic lanes, said Marc Bischoff of Caltrans.
The schedule, which is subject to change, is as follows:
- From 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday and Tuesday, all lanes of northbound I-5 will be closed from Artesia Boulevard to Carmenita Road.
- During those times, the westbound state Route 91 connector to northbound I-5 will also be closed.
- Lanes will reopen each morning.
Beginning a 5 a.m. on Tuesday, there will be four lanes of traffic all the way from the Orange County line to I-605, including an HOV (carpool) lane. The new Valley View Avenue loop off-ramp from northbound I-5 will also open. The old northbound Valley View Avenue off-ramp will close for demolition.
And beginning at 5 a.m. on Wednesday, there will be five lanes of traffic all the way from the Orange County line to I-605, including an HOV lane.
Alternate route: westbound State Route 91 to northbound I-605 (San Gabriel River Freeway) to northbound I-5.
