I-5 Widening Project

Starting in January 2019, construction will begin on numerous improvements to the I-5 freeway between SR-73 and El Toro Road. The project aims to:

  • Add one northbound and southbound lane from Avery Pkwy to Alicia Pkwy.
  • Extend second carpool lane from Alica to El Toro on both sides of the freeway.
  • Reconstruct interchanges at Avery, La Paz Road, and Los Alisos overcrossing.
  • Reconstruct and add auxiliary lanes.
  • Realign and improve on- and off- ramps.

The project will be divided into three segments:

  1. SR 73 to south of Oso Pkwy | October 2019 – October 2024
  2. South of Oso to south of Alicia | January 2019 – August 2023
  3. South of Alicia to north of El Toro | April 2020 – May 2024

The planning and construction will be funded with Measure M dollars and is currently scheduled to be completed in October of 2024.
