You may have seen crews on site preparing for construction on I-5 between Mission Street at Exit 253 and Kuebler Boulevard at Exit 252.

You’ll see paving activity on southbound I-5 lanes this week. Plan ahead, you can expect:

  • Construction noise and delays.
  • Speed reduced to 45 m.p.h. in the work zone.
  • Single lane closures: Sunday – Friday, 9:00 p.m. – 5:00 a.m.
  • Double lane closures: Sunday – Friday, 9:00 p.m. – 4:00 a.m.
  • On and off-ramp closures, one at a time: Sunday – Friday, 9:00 p.m. – 5:00 a.m.
  • Detours while we’re working on the on and off-ramps.

As part of the I-5 project, we’ll:

  • Remove and install new pavement on:
  • Northbound lanes from milepost 253.72 to milepost 251.1.
  • Southbound lanes from milepost 253.72 to milepost 250.17.
  • Repave the northbound Exit 253 off-ramp and southbound Mission Street on-ramp.
  • Install permanent striping and rumble strips.
  • Repair the rough road approaching the Turner Road and railroad overpasses on I-5.
  • Make some ADA improvements at the northbound I-5 on and off-ramps on Kuebler Boulevard.​
