Both sides of the 5 Freeway in Santa Fe Springs will be closed overnight through Friday for bridge construction, Caltrans said. 

The closure began Sunday, and will continue each night through Friday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Carmenita Road to Artesia Boulevard for construction of the new Valley View Avenue bridge. 

The following will be closed each night from  9 p.m. to 6 a.m. and re-opening each morning:

Southbound 605 connector to southbound 5 will be closed.

Westbound 91 Freeway connector ramp to northbound 5 will be closed.

S. Firestone Blvd. closed from Marquardt Avenue to the onramp to southbound 5 Freeway will be closed, but access to local businesses is permitted.

Corresponding on and off ramps within the freeway closure will also be closed, Caltrans said. 

A possible detour available for those heading south will start at Carmenita Road. Commuters can get back on the 5 Freeway at Artesia Boulevard. Northbound commuters will be detoured the opposite way -- from Artesia Boulevard to Carmenita Road. 

Drivers can also catch the 605 South to the 91 East to the 5 South, Caltrans said.
