If you have the misfortune of waking up in the Valley in the middle of the night next week, be prepared for some annoying 5 Freeway closures.

The southbound 5 will be closed between the 118 and the 170 Monday through Thursday nights from midnight till 4 a.m. Traffic will be routed through surface streets.

Crews will be demolishing the median to make way for carpool lanes and general widening of the 60-year-old freeway.
