The closures include:
Up to three lanes of Northbound I-5 between the end of the existing truck lane and Lyons Avenue: 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Although at least one lane will be open at all times. The largest number of lane closures will occur between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m.

The two lanes closest to the median, on both sides of the freeway, will be closed between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., excluding Friday and Saturday nights.
