The Orange County Transportation Authority plans to detour five bus lines around the road closures from 1 to 5 p.m. They are: the 83 (Anaheim-Laguna Hills), 145 (Santa Ana-Costa Mesa), 206 (Santa Ana-Lake Forest Express), 462 (the Depot at Santa Ana-Civic Center) and 757 (Pomona-Santa Ana Express).

The CHP may conduct rolling off-ramp closures of the I-5, however they would not specify their plans. If you expect to be on the I-5 through Santa Ana this afternoon, be prepared for delays.
