OCTA and Caltrans Construction Projects Move Forward on I-5

Construction crews will be closing the loop on-ramp from westbound Camino Las Ramblas to southbound I-5 for an extended period, beginning Friday, February 3. The ramp closure is part of the $230 million I-5 South County Improvements Project, which extends the carpool lanes from San Juan Capistrano to San Clemente.

During the closure, which will be in effect from 10 p.m. Friday, February 3, to 5 a.m. Monday, February 13, crews will realign the ramp to accommodate the widened freeway. Motorists will be detoured to Doheny Park Road and southbound Pacific Coast Highway to access southbound I-5.

On the other side of I-5, as part of a separate Caltrans project, repair work has begun on the loop on-ramp from eastbound Camino Las Ramblas to northbound I-5. Crews will be demolishing and replacing the bridge deck and the bridge barrier rails of the on-ramp. The project requires closing the loop on-ramp for four months, through May 31.
