Closures for I-5 Truck Lane Project

 

 

Santa Clarita — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to implement the closures listed below as part of a 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. Detours will be signed. No unusual levels of dust, noise or vibration are expected. Closures are subject to change.

 

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.

 

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

 

For real-time traffic information, visit quickmap.dot.ca.gov, go511.com, or call 5-1-1.

 

Closure Dates: Sunday, August 11, through Saturday, August 17, 2013

 

NORTHBOUND I-5

 

Lanes

 

  • Up to three lanes of northbound I-5 between the end of the existing truck lane and Lyons Ave.9 p.m. to 5 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., except the night of August 11 – 12, when three lanes will be closed from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.

 

SOUTHBOUND I-5

 

Lanes

 

  • Up to three lanes of southbound I-5 between Lyons Ave. and the end of the existing truck lane — 9 p.m. to 5 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.

About the Project

 

The project is adding a truck lane to the outside of southbound I-5 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. Funds administered by Metro.

About the Project

 

This project will replace slabs in both directions of I-5 between the Vista Del Lago Road overcrossing and the Kern County Line, a distance of 15.4 miles.

 

The two outside lanes and outside shoulder will be completely replaced, and damaged pavement slabs will be replaced in the inside lanes. Additionally, the project will update drainage features, upgrade the wooden guardrail posts to metal, add post mile signage, widen the inside shoulders, replace broken approach and departure slabs, and repave ramps.

 

This $100.1 million project, which will be completed in mid-2015, will extend the life of the pavement, reduce maintenance costs and closures, and provide a smoother ride for motorists. The contractor is Griffith/Coffman Joint Venture of Brea, Calif.

 

Most of the construction will be completed at night to minimize inconvenience to motorists, though there will be some work during the day.
