Nighttime closure of Avery under I-5 bridge planned for December 20-23
The I-5 northbound Avery Parkway off-ramp will be closed and southbound off-ramp reduced to one lane December 20-23 to accommodate partial demolition of the I-5 bridge over Avery.
The demolition of the median portion of that bridge requires the closure of the street below the freeway each night from 10 pm until 5 am, according to the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA). If necessary, the same closures could be in effect December 27-30.
The nighttime full closure is required to allow crews to safely perform work on the bridge as part of the freeway widening project.
Motorists should expect delays and plan alternate routes. Find more details and sign up for construction alerts on the OCTA website.
