I-5 Central Corridor HOV Project construction activities are scheduled to continue this week on Main Street in the City of Santa Ana for the removal of the temporary support structure that was used to construct the bridge barrier. There will also be paving and traffic signal work. The work is on Main Street south of Walkie Way for the Northbound lanes near Edgewood Road from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, September 9, 2020.
Expect alternating short-term closures (up to two (2) hours each) of Main Street’s Northbound lanes between Walkie Way and south of Edgewood Road. During this time, it is recommended to avoid this area to minimize potential traffic delays by using Broadway instead of Main Street.
Main Street improvements are anticipated to be completed by the end of September. OCTA and Caltrans’ construction team has been expediting this work while traffic demand has been relatively lower due to COVID-19. Should you have any questions or issues with the construction please call (800) 724-0353 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project adds an additional carpool lane (for a total of two lanes) in each direction on I-5 between SR-55 and SR-57 to reduce traffic congestion, bottlenecks, encourage ride-sharing and improve traffic flow. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2021. To sign up for construction alerts or for more information, visit www.octa.net/i5Central.
Dates and times are subject to change if there is inclement weather or if there are unforeseen construction constraints.
