What's an $86.2 million project without a ceremonial groundbreaking?
Check out the video to see some of the festivities, which took place under a giant white tent where the Jack in the Box once stood.
Caltran estimates it will take two-plus years to build a new Ortega Highway interchange at the I-5 Freeway.
The project will involve some closures along the way:
- Northbound I-5 off-ramp to Ortega Highway (3 weeks)
- Southbound I-5 on-ramp from Ortega Highway (6 weeks)
- Ortega Highway between southbound I-5 ramps and Del Obispo (3 weeks)
- Ortega Highway between El Camino Real and Del Obispo (4 weeks)
