SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) stated southbound I-5 from the PCH/Las Ramblas exit to the Avenida Pico exit will be reduced to two lanes as of 9 a.m. on Feb. 28. The lane reductions will also take place March 1 and 4.
The southbound I-5 lanes were originally scheduled to be reduced to two lanes from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday but were delayed due to rain on Tuesday, according to an OCTA press release. The daytime lane closures are necessary because of temperature requirements for paving and striping work. Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes if possible when the striping projects begin. More information is available at octa.net/I5southdetours.
Dates and times are subject to change if there is inclement weather or there are unforeseen operational factors.
