Construction crews have completed pile driving at the current location of the I-5/Ortega Highway intersection, Caltrans reports.
In the coming weeks, crews will continue work to reconstruct the south half of the bridge and will complete several concrete pours as well as begin to erect falsework. Falsework is a temporary structure used in construction to support spanning or arched structures, such as bridges, to hold it in place until the structure can sufficiently support itself.
Regularly scheduled nighttime closures from today through Saturday include the following lane closures:
Lane closures on the northbound I-5 freeway between Camino Capistrano and Jenipero Serra Road between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. starting today until Thursday.
Lane closures on the southbound I-5 freeway between Junipero Serra Road and Camino Capistrano between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. from Tuesday through Thursday.
