We are committed to assisting local businesses during the reconstruction of the I-5 / Avenida Pico Interchange in San Clemente. Businesses are invited to participate in our “Purchase on Pico” Program, free of charge.
This $230 million project is funded in part by Measure M2, Orange County's half-cent sales transportation tax. In addition, OCTA is funding the work with a combination of Measure M2 local sales tax and state and federal funding.
The project is being constructed in three segments: Avenida Pico to Avenida Vista Hermosa; Avenida Vista Hermosa to Pacific Coast Highway; and Pacific Coast Highway to San Juan Creek Road.
Flatiron Construction began work on the first segment, focused on the Avenida Pico Interchange, in February 2015. Work on the second segment, also being done by Flatiron, started in September 2014 and includes construction of retaining walls and sound walls, as well as on- and off-ramp improvements. Shimmick Construction has the third segment, centered primarily on the PCH / I-5 interchange, where work began in February 2014.
Night Closures: Avenida Pico is closed Monday through Friday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. for up to six weeks. The northbound I-5 Pico off- and on-ramps, as well as the southbound I-5 on-ramp, also will be closed during this time. The closures will allow crews to remove and install falsework for the Avenida Pico bridge.
