Caltrans plans Interstate 5 closures starting Sunday to day before Thanksgiving

By THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN

The California Department of Transportation plans to close multiple lanes of Interstate 5 in north Los Angeles County as part of a $100.1 million pavement improvement project between Vista Del Lago Road and the Kern County line.

Motorists should expect multiple simultaneous closures in different locations within the limits listed. Closures will be signed well in advance.

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.

There will be no construction closures during the Thanksgiving holiday period from 6 a.m. Nov. 21 through 11:59 p.m. Nov. 24

There will be closures from Sunday to Nov. 21. They are as follows:

Northbound I-5:

* Northbound I-5 between Vista Del Lago Road and the Kern County line: One lane may be closed at any time, up to two lanes from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m. the following day.

* Northbound I-5 off-ramp to Vista Del Lago Road: From 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

* Vista Del Lago Road on-ramp to northbound I-5: From 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Southbound I-5:

* Southbound I-5 between the Kern County line and Vista Del Lago Road: One lane may be closed at any time, up to two lanes from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m. the following day.

* Southbound I-5 connector to eastbound Highway 138: From 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

* Southbound Highway 138 connector to southbound I-5: From 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

* Southbound I-5 off-ramp to Quail Lake Road: From 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

* Quail Lake Road on-ramp to southbound I-5: From 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The most restrictive closures when the most lanes are closed will happen between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. when traffic volumes are lower.
