The project limits on I-5 extend from 0.5 mi south of the SR-73 interchange (PM 12.4) to 0.2 mi north of the El Toro Rd UC (PM 18.9). The proposed project will add general purpose lanes in each direction on I-5 between Avery Pkwy and Alicia Pkwy, extend the second HOV lane from Alicia Pkwy to El Toro Rd, reestablish existing auxiliary lanes and construct new auxiliary lanes, and improve several existing on- and off-ramps. Additionally, the project proposes no HOV buffer and will accommodate continuous access throughout the project limits.
