I-5 Grapevine Construction to Jam Traffic Overnight

I-5 Grapevine Construction to Jam Traffic Overnight

Caltrans is warning motorists of potential traffic delays overnight on I-5 in the Grapevine area.

Up to two lanes will be closed in either direction between Vista del Lago and the Kern County Line.

Lanes will close on the 5 NORTH starting at 5pm and remain shut down until noon the following day.

Lanes on the 5 SOUTH will close at 6pm and those closures will remain in effect until 3pm the following day.

A number of ramps will be closed at times, including the 5 SOUTH too 138 EAST and 138 WEST to 5 SOUTH transition roads.

Officials say that drivers should expect multiple simultaneous closures in different locations throughout the entire stretch.

The $100 million project is necessary to replace the freeway pavement, some of which dates back to the 1950s.
