For the rest of the sum­mer, one of two on-ramps to the south­bound lanes of In­ters­tate 5 near Hasley Canyon Road will re­main closed by Cal­trans as part of the I-5 pave­ment re­place­ment project.

The on-ramp clo­sure be­gan mid-May, and it’s ex­pected to con­tinue un­til at least mid-Au­gust.

The Cal­i­for­nia De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion is­sued a news re­lease last month ad­vis­ing con­struc­tion will close one of two of the south­bound I-5’s on-ramps at Hasley Canyon Road for up to three months.

The sec­ond on-ramp at Hasley Canyon Road is ex­pected to re­main open daily, ac­cord­ing to a May 15 re­lease.

The south­bound on-ramp at Se­dona Way closed mid-May, and it’s ex­pected to be closed con­tin­u­ously un­til about mid-Au­gust while new pave­ment is con­structed where the ramp en­ters the free­way, Cal­trans of­fi­cials said.

As an al­ter­na­tive, driv­ers are urged by Cal­trans to use a sec­ond on-ramp to south­bound I-5 at Hasley Canyon Road, lo­cated 0.2 miles south of the closed ramp at Se­dona Way.

This tem­po­rary ramp clo­sure is part of a $171 mil­lion con­struc­tion project to re­place and re­pair con­crete lanes on nearly 16 miles of I-5.

The on-ramp at Hasley Canyon Road is sched­uled to gen­er­ally re­main open dur­ing con­struc­tion though it will close in­ter­mit­tently on some nights.

It will re­open by 6 a.m. or ear­lier, Mon­days through Fri­days.

The sched­ule, ac­cord­ing to Cal­trans, is weather-per­mit­ting and subject to change.

When both on-ramps are closed, de­tour signs will be posted to di­rect driv­ers south on The Old Road about two miles to the next south­bound I-5 on-ramp at Rye Canyon Road.

The I-5 Road­way Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Project is re­mov­ing and re­plac­ing all of the con­crete in the two right lanes (No. 3 and 4 lanes) and re­pair­ing dam­aged sec­tions of the No. 1 and 2 lanes on I-5 from one-half mile south of High­way 14 to 1.7 miles north of Lake Hughes Road. The ex­pected com­ple­tion date is in fall 2019. The public will see more pave­ment projects in the fu­ture as a re­sult of Sen­ate Bill 1, Cal­i­for­nia’s new trans­porta­tion fund­ing plan.
