The California Department of Transportation is advising motorists that some lanes will be closed overnight on Interstate 5 in northern Los Angeles County for pavement work between late November 2021 and mid-February 2022.

Closures will take place I-5 southbound between the Los Angeles-Kern County Line and one mile south of Vista del Lago Road, in the Gorman-Lebec area.

As of Monday, November 29, closures are scheduled as follows:

From 10 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings:

10:00 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. – Two lanes closed (leaving two lanes open to traffic)

11:59 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. – Three lanes closed (leaving one lane open to traffic)

4h00 to 6h00 – Two lanes closed (leaving two lanes open to traffic)

2h00 to 5h00 – Three lanes closed (leaving one lane open to traffic)

5:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. – Two lanes closed (leaving two lanes open to traffic)

Commuters and other travelers using I-5 southbound are strongly advised to allow additional travel time due to possible delays in the work area. Closures will not be scheduled on public holidays or weekends with heavy holiday traffic. The schedule is subject to change for meteorological or operational reasons.

Motorists can check current closures and traffic conditions before starting their trip by visiting the Caltrans website QuickMap.dot.ca.gov which offers a free app for iPhone and Android devices.

The teams working on this I-5 project are rectifying the surface of the concrete slabs to provide a smoother ride and extend the life of the pavement. The contractor is Harber Companies Inc. of San Bernardino.

Caltrans reminds operators to “Be alert to the work area” and “Slow to the cone area”.
