Nighttime Bridge Demo at I-5 and La Paz Road

As part of the I-5 Freeway Widening Project in south Orange County, crews are reconstructing the La Paz Road interchange. Next weekend, they will demolish the pre-existing loop on-ramp and bridge to northbound I-5 from La Paz Road in Mission Viejo. This demolition will clear the path for widening the bridge and roadway to the east.

In keeping with OCTA’s commitment to mobility, motorists will have continued access to I-5 via a temporary loop on-ramp. Similarly, the freeway has been re-striped in this area to maintain the same number of general-purpose lanes.

The demolition will occur during the following:

Date/Time
Friday, Nov. 15 &  Saturday, Nov. 16 10 p.m. to 8

Closures
La Paz at I-5
Northbound loop on-ramp
Southbound loop on-ramp

Date/Time
Monday, Nov. 18 – Thursday, Nov. 21 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Closures
La Paz reduced to one lane in each direction

Safe, approved and direct detours will be in place to guide motorists around the demolition/construction zone. Demolition must take place at night when the closure of freeway lanes and local streets are authorized by state and local agencies. Learn more about the project here.
