Update on closures for the I-5 Pavement Improvement Project

Caltrans plans to implement the closures listed below as part of a pavement improvement project on the Golden State Freeway (I-5) between Vista Del Lago Road and the Kern County line.

Signs will be posted for all detours. No unusual levels of dust, noise or vibration are expected. Closures are subject to change. Motorists should expect regular closures at multiple locations in the project area through November 2013.

For the safety of the construction crew and motorists, please be attentive to closures, slow for the cone zone, and move over one lane where possible. Closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website. For Caltrans’ press release, click here.
