SANTA FE SPRINGS — New northbound Florence Avenue on- and off-ramps on the 5 Freeway in Santa Fe Springs are scheduled to open to traffic Thursday 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 5 Freeway 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 5 Freeway from north of Valley View Avenue to the 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.
