Interstate 5

About three miles of Northbound Interstate 5 will be closed to traffic south of Redding tonight, Caltrans says. The closure will detour drivers off I-5 at state route 273, and return to the interstate at South Bonneview Road. The closure will be in place from midnight tonight until five a.m. Wednesday.

Construction workers will be pouring concrete. The work is part of an effort to widen I-5 to six continuous lanes through Redding and Anderson. Southbound lanes will not be affected.

Late night drivers using Northbound Interstate 5 in southern Shasta County should expect significant disruption to their normal routines next week. 


All northbound lanes will be closed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from midnight until 5 a.m. as highway widening work continues.


Workers replacing a railroad overpass will be lifting 150 foot long, 164,000 pound girders into place using cranes and other heavy equipment. Traffic will be detoured near Anderson for about three miles.
