About the Project
The $100.1 million project involves replacing slabs in both directions of I-5 between the Vista Del Lago Road overcrossing and the Kern County Line, a distance of 15.4 miles, CalTrans officials said.
The two outside lanes and outside shoulder are scheduled to be completely replaced, and damaged pavement slabs will be replaced in the inside lanes. Additionally, the project is scheduled to update drainage features, upgrade the wooden guardrail posts to metal, add post mile signage, widen the inside shoulders, replace broken approach and departure slabs and repave ramps.
The project is scheduled to be completed in fall 2014, and CalTrans officials’ goal is to extend the life of the pavement, reduce maintenance costs and closures and provide a smoother ride for motorists.
