SANTA FE SPRINGS (CNS) - New northbound Florence Avenue on- and off-ramps on the Santa Ana (5) Freeway in Santa Fe Springs are scheduled to open to traffic this morning, according to Caltrans.
Caltrans plans to begin synchronizing the ramp signals around 7 a.m. and have the ramps open to traffic by 9 a.m. or earlier, a spokesman said.
The Florence Avenue on-ramp to northbound I-5 will be accessible from eastbound or westbound Florence Avenue with traffic signal control. Traffic will be able to turn left or right onto Florence Avenue from the off-ramp with traffic signal control.
There are now four all-purpose mainlines open to traffic on the northbound and southbound 1-5 from north of Valley View Avenue to the San Gabriel River (605) Freeway.
Throughout March and this month, the contractor has been re-striping, shifting lanes toward the median, and opening a fourth lane in sections where there were three lanes.
