Umbrella Update

October 27, 1991| Artist Christo's latest temporary outdoor art project, "The Umbrellas," is on display through Wednesday. Here is some help in viewing:

Where: Along Interstate 5 for 18 miles north from intersection of California 138 to the bottom of the Grapevine in the San Joaquin Valley.

Directions: Take I-5 north from Los Angeles, about 60 miles from downtown.

Turnarounds: At Quail Lake Road, Gorman, Frazier Park, Lebec and Ft. Tejon exits.

Viewing areas: Designated along the freeway and on Gorman Post, Lebec, Digier and Grapevine roads.

Traffic report: Traffic volume was heavier than normal but lighter than expected along Interstate 5 through the Grapevine on Saturday, Caltrans officials said. Because of rainfall in other parts of the Southern California many tourists avoided the area, Caltrans said. Traffic along county roads in the area was slightly above average, according to the California Highway Patrol. There was no slowing due to congestion. Traffic is expected to be heavier today. No reports of slowing on alternate routes.

Additional details: Available at an information center in Gorman.
