An overnight closure of a portion of the I-5 and the rollout of new summer bus route schedules are likely to affect traffic this weekend. Check our listing for details on ramp closures, construction updates and rider alerts for more.   

I-5 closed overnight

Weekend travelers, beware. Caltrans will close the I-5 near Norwalk on Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. 

All north and southbound I-5 lanes and ramps between the SR-91 and I-605 will be closed to demolish the Alondra Boulevard Bridge as part the I-5 Corridor Improvement Project. Detours will be posted,  but you can see specific ramp and lane closures below

Summer routes to take effect

As the summer approaches, keep in mind that many bus route schedules will be changing.

Orange County Transportation Authority bus routes and schedules have already changed to increase service to and around the beaches and to the Orange County Fair. 

OCTA assesses bus schedule three times a year and makes changes accordingly to alleviate crowded buses and improve overall services. Route 38, for example, will now provide service to Savi Ranch.

OCTA has also started the new Bravo Route 543, which hopes to hasten bus commute times between Costa Mesa and Fullerton. The route will only stop at "major transportation points" along Harbor Blvd. [Route map]. The bus is scheduled to run on weekdays. The fare will remain the same. 

If you're in Los Angeles and take Metro's 40, 30/330, 290, 603 or Orange Line buses, you'll want to know about the schedule changes that begin June 23.
