The I-5 Central Corridor HOV Project construction activities to reconstruct the sidewalk and concrete barrier on the west side of Main Street Overcrossing will continue this week through Thursday, September 3, 2020. This work is on Main Street south of Walkie Way for both Southbound and Northbound traffic near Edgewood Road starting at 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., daily.

The work will require closure of both the Southbound and Northbound Main Street right-most curb lanes from Walkie Way to just south of Edgewood Road. Additionally, the Broadway Off-ramp for Northbound I-5 will be closed to expedite work. However, the Northbound I-5 Main Street off-ramp will remain open. If possible, please avoid this area during these times to avoid traffic delays and/or use Broadway north-south instead of Main Street.

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.
