Southbound I-5’s carpool lane reopens

The southbound Interstate 5 HOV lane reopened today, five days ahead of schedule.

On May 13, the state Department of Transportation closed the lane just south of state Route 18 so crews could cut open pavement on the left shoulder and dig 13 feet down to install a system that will catch highway runoff.

The lane reopened at 2 p.m. today due to fast-curing concrete. It was scheduled to remain closed until May 23.

The closure was the first of many to come as part of a $112 million project that will build two flyover ramps at the interchange.
