    5 Freeway ramp bypass near Parking structure closed ?

    Is there been a reason as to why 5 Freeway bypass ramp by Ball Road and by the Mickey and Friends Parking structure has closed arrows on one side but the other opening has the arrows as open?
    Its been closed for 1-3 years now and it seems weird its half open but never used.

    Kinda confused as to what you mean. The ramp is open and used, though at times it is shut down during the middle of the day - probably when they're switching from "Enter" to "Exit". It's typically a one-way ramp. Enter in the morning and Exit in the evening. It also gets shut down when the lot is full and they're redirecting traffic.

    is that why is shut down on the enter side of the parking structure around 1-2pm? when does it usually open to exit on then?

    when exiting disneyland dr from the 5 south or heading south on disneyland dr, the express bridge is open heading into the structure during the morning hours. sometime during the late morning/early afternoon, they reverse the direction (structure exit heading towards the freeway going north).

    now if someone can share how they actually go about changing the direction, that would be good. is there a person that puts those pylons up?

    thanks!

    The bridge is One-Way Traffic on purpose - although it would be a help if it was Bi-Flow during the slack times, just so you didn't have to sit at the looooooong traffic light... It's safer this way.

    There is a team of three or four Parking & Transportation workers that reverses the flow on the Bridge twice a day. Flatbed Cab-over truck with an Arrow Board on top, a supply of traffic cones and those little round plug-in bollard posts in the back, and a gas-engine air compressor for cleaning the dirt and gravel out of the holes in the pavement that the bollard posts plug into.

    In the late afternoon they switch the changeable Sign Boards to close the Incoming side first and then open the Exiting side. And an hour or two after closing, they close the Exiting side and set it back up for Entering again in the morning.
