Orange Striping Pilot Program Resumes on I-5 in the City of Carlsbad
Caltrans and SANDAG Build NCC crews will restripe the orange contrasted lane striping on I-5 between Palomar Airport Road in the City of Carlsbad and State Route 78 (SR 78) in the City of Oceanside on Monday, August 28, and will operate during nighttime working hours from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. until completion of this effort on Thursday, August 31. Minor lane closures will be implemented during this time period. Detour signage will be placed to guide motorists around this work. *Please note construction schedules are subject to change.
The orange contrasted lane striping will remain in active construction zones until project completion in early 2025.
The orange striping is meant to draw attention to the work zone, reinforce the 55-mph speed limit reduction, and improve both driver and construction worker safety. The orange striping can be found in the stated limits below:
DRIVE 55 on I-5!
Motorists traveling along I-5 in North County between Poinsettia Lane in the City of Carlsbad and State Route 78 (SR 78) in the City of Oceanside – are advised of a speed limit reduction to 55 mph in both north and southbound directions. The speed limit reduction will be in place until project completion in 2025.
This speed limit reduction within the highway work zone is necessary to ensure the safety of the traveling public, and construction and public safety professionals. Construction signage will alert drivers as they enter and exit the construction zone. Additionally, the California Highway Patrol will be actively working to ensure motorists are driving safely by enforcing the new, posted speed limit. Please note fines are doubled in work zones.
