Interstate 5 in the Castaic area in northern Los Angeles County will be reduced from four lanes to two lanes in the northbound or southbound direction between 5 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 2-4, Caltrans announced Thursday.
The California Department of Transportation strongly advises motorists using I-5 in this area to start their travel earlier than usual to allow extra travel time as crews will close two lanes each day for a paving operation. The schedule is as follows:
Monday, Oct. 2, from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m.:
On Northbound I-5, four miles north of Lake Hughes Road (at postmile 63.5) the right two lanes (#3 and 4 lanes) will be closed for three-fourths of a mile.
Tuesday, Oct. 3, from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m.:
On Northbound I-5, one-fourth of a mile north of Templin Highway (at postmile 66.22) the right two lanes (#3 and 4 lanes) will be closed for about one and a half miles.
Wednesday, Oct. 4, from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m.:
On Southbound I-5, three miles south of Vista Del Lago Road (at postmile 71.2) the right two lanes (#3 and 4 lanes) will be closed for one-fourth of a mile.
The schedule is subject to change due to weather or operational reasons. Closure locations and hours, including the opening time each day, are subject to change.
