SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Freeway closures will make things interesting just north of San Diego County in the next two weeks, Caltrans officials said.
Demolition work on a freeway overpass on Interstate 5 at San Juan Capistrano will force the overnight closure of the freeway in both directions, starting at 11 p.m. both Friday night and Saturday night. Reopening is planned for 7 a.m. Saturday and Sunday mornings.
The southern side of the Ortega Highway (Route 74) overpass above Interstate 5 is being removed this weekend, about 70 miles north of San Diego. Traffic on both I-5 and 73 toll road will both be affected.
Traffic north of San Clemente and south of Irvine will be forced to exit the freeway at Route 74, then re-enter on adjacent onramps. Because of heavy anticipated traffic, cross traffic and drivers wishing to enter or exit the 5 at the 74 will be detoured to nearby ramps or bridges.
The following weekend, and in northwestern Orange County, the San Diego (405) Freeway will be closed for 20 hours, starting at 9 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17, and to reopen at about 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 18.
The 405 will be closed northbound from Valley View Street and southbound at the I-605 junction. Southbound I-605 and eastbound 22 will also be closed at their junctions with the southbound lanes of the 405.
