The I-5 Central Corridor HOV Project construction activities are scheduled to continue this week on Main Street in the City of Santa Ana. Work includes, the installation of a signal pole on the northwest corner of N. Main Street and Edgewood Road starting on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Thursday, July 23, 2020.

The installation of the signal pole will require the following:

• Closure of the Southbound Main Street right-most curb lane from Walkie Way to just south of Edgewood Road.
• Expect some delay during these times.

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

When fully completed, this project will add 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

Dates and times are subject to change if there is inclement weather or if there are unforeseen construction constraints.
