logo_caltransThe California Department of Transportation plans to close the lanes listed below as part of a $72 million project that is constructing a truck lane on southbound I-5 between Pico Canyon Road/Lyons Avenue and the Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14). Ramp closures will be staggered. Closures are subject to change. Detours will be signed.

For the safety of the construction crew and motorists, please be attentive to closures, slow for the cone zone, and move over one lane where possible.

Lane closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website: http://www.lcswebreports.dot.ca.gov/lcswebreports.

 

Golden State Freeway (I-5) Closures

Tuesday, February 19, through Friday, February 22

§ Up to three lanes of northbound I-5 between the end of the existing truck lane and Lyons Ave.

TIME: 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Note: At least one lane will be open at all times. The most restrictive closures (i.e., the most lanes closed) will occur between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m.

§ Up to three lanes of southbound I-5 between Lyons Ave. and the end of the existing truck lane

TIME: 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Note: At least one lane will be open at all times. The most restrictive closures (i.e., the most lanes closed) will occur between midnight and 4 a.m.

 

About the Project

The project is adding a truck lane to the outside of southbound I-5 in by paving the median area and outside shoulder, and shifting the mixed-flow lanes inward. Median retaining walls and two short sections of outside retaining walls will be built to accommodate this widening.

The truck lane will extend from Pico Canyon Road/Lyons Avenue to SR-14, a distance of 3.7 miles.

This project will ease traffic delays, improve goods movement, absorb traffic growth due to population increase (both residential and commercial), and enhance safety by separating truck traffic from passenger vehicles.

Construction began in May 2012 and will be completed in 2014.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the lanes and connector listed below as part of a $161 million improvement project to construct High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lanes and a direct HOV lane connector at the I-5/SR-14 interchange. Closures are subject to change. Detours will be signed.

For the safety of the construction crew and motorists, please be attentive to closures, slow for the cone zone, and move over one lane where possible.

Lane closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website: http://www.lcswebreports.dot.ca.gov/lcswebreports/

Golden State Freeway (I-5)

Tuesday, February 19, through Friday, February 22

§ One lane of the southbound I-5 truck route collector roadTIME: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14)

Tuesday, February 19, through Friday, February 22

§ Southbound SR-14 connector to northbound I-5TIME: 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
About the Project This project involves the construction of an elevated two-lane direct HOV connector at the I-5/SR-14 interchange and construction of HOV lanes in both directions at the interchange. The direct HOV connector enables freeway-to-freeway transfers without exiting the carpool lane.

The project will relieve congestion, improve traffic flow, enhance safety and improve traffic operations on both freeways at the interchange. The work is part of Caltrans’ effort to provide motorists with a seamless carpool lane network in California.

Work began in July 2008 and is on track to be completed in spring 2013. The direct HOV connector opened to traffic in December 2012. Caltrans thanks the motoring public for their patience and understanding during construction.
