I-5/Genesee Avenue Interchange Project Information

The I-5/Genesee Avenue interchange construction broke ground in mid-February 2015. This project will take approximately three years to complete, and will replace the existing six-lane bridge with a ten-lane bridge. Freeway access ramps will be widened during this process and will help eleviate traffic congestion during peak travel periods.
