Central Coast drivers can expect a higher volume of traffic on Highway 101 this week due to a closure along Interstate 5, according to Caltrans.

Caltrans District 7 is closing all lanes of southbound I-5 from Vista Del Lago to Templin Highway in northern Los Angeles County.

The closure will take place overnights starting Monday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each day. The freeway will also be closed starting at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, until 8 a.m. on Sunday, May 21.

Pavement work and roadway striping will be done along the highway due to a landslide that occurred during a rainstorm in April.

Northbound Interstate 5 will remain open.
