CONSTRUCTION IMPACTS OCCURRING -
Jackson County - Oregon - Construction is occurring from mile post 11.4 to mile post 0 causing delays of up to 20 minutes. Use caution. Ramps affected. Expect slow, single-lane traffic as a concrete barrier is being set in the soutbound lanes in preparation for this season’s work zone, which includes the southbound Exit 6 bridge deck replacement. The southbound on-ramp at Exit 6 will be closed until May 20th. This will allow for building a temporary southbound on-ramp from the Old Siskiyou Highway. During this phase of construction, local motorists traveling to California will use the Old Siskiyou Highway to reach the southbound I-5 ramps at Exit 1. Expect single lane traffic with delays in various locations this construction season. For northbound traffic, the travel lanes will be closed with the truck travel lanes open. This is going to cause slow downs throughout the area. Please add extra time for safe travel. Accidents have been occurring due to speeding vehicles going above recommended speeds.
Douglas County - Oregon - Construction is occurring and re paving work is underway 7 miles south of Roseburg on Roberts Mountain. This project will pave five miles of I-5 and build climbing lanes on the northbound and southbound approach to Roberts Mountain. Construction will continue until summer 2021. On Roberts Mountain (MP 113-118), the speed limit has been reduced to 55 mph in the southbound direction. The southbound shoulder is closed in this area. Elsewhere, watch for intermittent lane and shoulder closures.
