    To safely and efficiently perform the demolition of the I-5 bridge rail over Cypress Avenue, the contractor will be closing Cypress Avenue at the overcrossing during the following times:

  • Tuesday, July 12, 2011 from 10 pm to 6 am — Westbound Cypress Avenue CLOSED.
  • Wednesday, July 13, 2011 from 10 pm to 6 am — Eastbound Cypress Avenue CLOSED.

Detours will be available and clearly marked. Motorists are encouraged to take alternate routes.

This work is part of the South Redding Six Lane project which is being constructed by Tullis, Inc. of Redding. This project will add an additional lane in both the northbound and southbound direction of I-5 from north of the Smith Road Overcrossing to 0.2 miles north of I-5/State Route 299 separation. This $18 million project is under construction and will complete in the summer of 2012.
