NORWALK – The southbound I-5 on-ramp at Norwalk Boulevard and San Antonio Drive was permanently closed this week as part of the freeway expansion project.
Caltrans is constructing a new temporary southbound on-ramp which should open in May 2014.
Meanwhile, Caltrans has scheduled overnight full freeway, connector and ramp closures on the northbound and southbound I-5 to continue work on the Shoemaker Avenue bridge.

On Sunday from 1-8 a.m., all freeway lanes will be closed from Carmenita to Rosecrans. Motorists will be detoured at the Carmenita Road off-ramp to reconnect at the northbound I-5 at the Rosecrans on-ramp.
The westbound 91 Freeway connector to the northbound I-5 will be closed from 12:01-8 p.m. Drivers traveling westbound on the 91 can continue to the northbound 605 and reconnect to the northbound 5.
The southbound I-5 on-ramp at Rosecrans will be closed Saturday from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
All freeway lanes will be closed between Rosecrans and Carmenita from 2-7 a.m. Sunday. Motorists will be detoured at Rosecrans and can reconnect to the southbound I-5 at Carmenita.
