Northbound I-5 all lanes and corresponding ramps are scheduled to be CLOSED from Rosecrans Blvd. to I-605 from 11:59 p.m. Thursday, August 16 until 5 a.m. Friday, August 17. The closure will allow paving of the new lanes that we are adding to I-5.

Detour signs will direct traffic off northbound I-5 to westbound Rosecrans Blvd. to northbound I-605 back to northbound I-5. Alternate route: westbound State Route 91 (Artesia Freeway) to northbound I-605 to northbound I-5. Detour map below:
