5 Freeway to Shut Down in Santa Fe Springs for New Bridge Construction

Drivers who regularly take the 5 Freeway in Santa Fe Springs should be prepared for a full, evening closure Thursday due to crews planning to construct the new half of the Florence Avenue bridge.

The California Department of Transportation announced a nighttime full freeway closure between the 5 Freeway and 605 Freeway near Norwalk Boulevard. Related ramps will also be closed until 5 a.m. Friday.

The construction is part of the $644 million project to add car pool and regular lanes to the 5 Freeway near the area.
