Gorman — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the northbound I-5 off-ramp to Gorman Road beginning June 7, 2013, through July 14, 2013, while crews place new concrete pavement. Alternative northbound exits are Quail Lake Road and Frazier Mountain Park Road. Detour signs are posted.

Motorists are advised that the Gorman Road on-ramp to northbound I-5 is also closed and will reopen on June 17, 2013. Detour signs direct motorists to access northbound I-5 at the Frazier Mountain Park Road on-ramp. (See the Motorist Advisory dated May 28, 2013, for more information about the on-ramp closure.)

The work is part of a project that is 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.

This $100.1 million project, which will be completed in mid-2015, will extend the life of the pavement, reduce maintenance costs and closures, and provide a smoother ride for motorists. The contractor is Griffith/Coffman Joint Venture of Brea, Calif.

Closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website:
