Road Conditions by Route

I-5 MP 250.15 to 251.76

Estimated delay under 20 minutes; Construction Work
Comments: From July 22 to 25 expect ramp closures at interchange for paving. Continue to expect intermittent night time lane closures on I-5 south bound. Ramps Affected. Initially, the southbound off ramp will be closed at 9 p.m. on Friday to complete the top lift paving. The southbound off ramp will open and the northbound off ramp will be closed to facilitate paving on Kuebler. Work should be completed by 5 a.m. on Monday, July 25. Motorists should be aware of the increased construction activity around the interchange, proceed with caution through the work zone and obey posted speed limits. Project Summary: The I-5 Kuebler Interchange Project will address the increasing congestion at the interchange by modifying the existing southbound off ramp, which will decrease the conflicts at Kuebler that have caused back-ups on I-5 southbound. The new ramp will meet modern standards and contain excess capacity. The project will also add a westbound to southbound I-5 loop on ramp and modify the eastbound to southbound I-5 on ramp.
