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. Crews have wrapped up work early on the second leg of construction on Interstate 5 in the Orland area. As a result, traffic-interferring work on I-5 between County Road 16 (South Street) and County Road 3 will take a break until after the Glenn County Fair and Memorial Day holiday weekend. Motorists can expect lane and freeway ramp restrictions to resume on June 6.

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.
