Orange County Transportation Authority officials said construction crews are currently forming the bottom of the new retaining wall along the northbound Interstate 5 off-ramp to Camino de Estrella, at the Capistrano Beach/San Clemente border.

Also, both the Avenida Pico’s southbound I-5 off-ramp and northbound I-5 on-ramp, in San Clemente, will begin nightly closures on Sunday for roadway widening and vegetation removal activities. The nighttime closures, from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., will allow crews to safely access the construction areas, OCTA officials said.

Several Friday night concrete pours are scheduled for the wall, beginning Sept. 25.
