I-5/Camino Capistrano Project

Construction is now underway to enhance traffic flow and improve the southbound ramp interchange on the San Diego Freeway (I-5) at Camino Capistrano in San Juan Capistrano. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration oversees the construction of the off-ramp widening and related improvements to address traffic backing up at the interchange on the freeway.
