caltrans050912There will be no planned construction closures for this project over Labor Day weekend, Aug. 30 – Sept. 1, 2014.

 

Santa Clarita — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to implement the closures listed below during the week of September 2-5, 2014, as part of a project that is constructing truck lanes on I-5 between Pico Canyon Road/Lyons Avenue and the Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14). More information about the project is here.

 

Ramp closures will be nonconsecutive. Detours will be signed. No unusual levels of dust, noise or vibration are expected. Closures are subject to change.

 

Closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website.

 

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

 

NORTHBOUND I-5

 

Lanes

 

  • Up to three lanes of northbound I-5 between the end of the existing truck lane and Lyons Avenue: 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.

 

  • Truck route collector: 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

 

Ramp

 

  • Calgrove Blvd. on-ramp: 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

 

SOUTHBOUND I-5

  • Up to three lanes of southbound I-5 between Lyons Ave. and the end of the existing truck lane: 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

About the Project

 

This project is widening the freeway and bridges to add a truck lane to the outside of I-5 in both directions by paving the median area and outside shoulder, and shifting the mixed-flow lanes inward. Three median retaining walls and two short sections of outside retaining walls will be built to accommodate this widening. The southbound truck lane will extend from Pico Canyon Road/Lyons Avenue to SR-14 (3.7 miles), while the northbound lane will run from SR-14 to Gavin Canyon (1.4 miles).

 

The new truck lanes 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 late 2014. Funds administered by Metro. For more information, visit I-5info.com.

 

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.

 

 

 

Closures for the I-5 Pavement Improvement Project

Vista Del Lago Road to Kern County Line

 

Expect DELAYS on I-5 between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. At times, only ONE LANE will be open.

 

LABOR DAY ADVISORY: Although there will be no construction closures for this project over Labor Day weekend (Aug. 30 – Sept. 1), expect DELAYS on I-5 due to holiday traffic. Check real-time traffic before you leave (see link below), take an alternate route if necessary, and leave extra time.

 

Gorman — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to implement the closures listed below during the week of September 2-5, 2014, as part of a pavement improvement project on the Golden State Freeway (I-5) between Vista Del Lago Road and the Kern County line. More information about the project is here.

 

Consecutive ramps will NOT be closed at the same time. Signs will be posted for all detours. No unusual levels of dust, noise or vibration are expected. Closures are subject to change.

 

TO AVOID DELAYS (especially if you will be traveling at night), check the Caltrans QuickMap before you leave to get real-time traffic information and see congestion hotspots. Take an alternate route if necessary. You can also call 5-1-1 for travel times and other helpful motorist information.

 

Closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website.

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 fall 2014, 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.

 

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.
