This week’s I-5 Central Corridor HOV Project construction activities to reconstruct the sidewalk and concrete barrier on the west side of Main Street Overcrossing have been extended into tomorrow, Saturday, August 29, 2020. Work will occur on Main Street south of Walkie Way for Southbound traffic near Edgewood Road starting at 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. for today (August 28, 2020) and tomorrow (August 29, 2020).

This work will require closure of the Southbound Main Street right-most curb lane from Walkie Way to just south of Edgewood Road from 6 a.m. to Noon each day. Please avoid this area by using Broadway instead Main Street during these times to avoid traffic delays.

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.
