With construction well underway on two segments of the I-5 South County Improvement Project, OCTA and Caltrans have started on the third segment between Vista Hermosa and Avenida Pico.
This segment includes the much anticipated reconstruction of the I-5 / Avenida Pico Interchange. Activities include widening the freeway, adding additional lanes on Avenida Pico and improving the on- and off-ramps.
While most closures and construction will take place at night, OCTA encourages parents, students and staff to allow extra time to get to school safely during construction.
