Orange County Transportation Authority officials said construction crews are currently forming the bottom of the new retaining wall along the northbound I-5 off-ramp to Camino de Estrella.

Also, both the Avenida Pico’s southbound I-5 off-ramp and northbound I-5 on-ramp will begin nightly closures on Sunday for roadway widening and vegetation removal activities. The nighttime closures, from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., will allow crews to safely access the construction areas.

Several Friday night concrete pours are scheduled for the wall, beginning Sept. 25.

  • Absolutely ridiculous planning by the city. Frwy widening and outlet malls all at the same time just choking traffic in this town. I believe an elementary student could plan better.

    Baffling
