I5 Vertical Clearance Project at South Street

Caltrans has contracted with Knife River Construction to increase the vertical clearance of the CR16/South Street overpass over I-5. We will share construction impact details here as Caltrans makes them available.

On-ramps will be closed more often than off-ramps, and both just intermittently (not constantly) as needed. The project is planned for March-July, weather permitting.

This is one of many Caltrans overpass clearance projects on I-5, and was planned for years, just like the many completed in recent years on I-80. Raising the overpass or lowering the roadway is necessary for truck safety; pictured at left is the result of lack of clearance at another location in California.
