Major nighttime delays can be expected next week on Interstate 5 between Orange and San Diego counties, as overnight freeway repaving will close three of the four lanes in each direction across Camp Pendleton, Caltrans officials said Thursday.

Contractors and crews will close three of the four freeway lanes in two- mile sections of both directions, between the Aliso Creek Rest Area and the Orange-San Diego county line.

No detour is available across the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base. The only alternate route is allowing a wide berth to the area, by using Interstate 15 through Corona and Escondido.

On Monday through Thursday of next week, lane closures will begin at 7:30 p.m. and end at 5 a.m. the next day.

On Friday and Saturday night of next week, the closures will start at 9 p.m. and end at around 8 or 9 a.m., Caltrans said.

The closures are part of the $43 million Interstate 5 Ocean View Rehabilitation Project.
