logo_caltrans_coneThe California Department of Transportation 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.

 

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

 

Call 511 for real-time traffic information or visit go511.com.

 

Closure Dates: Sunday, July 14, through Saturday, July 20, 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.

 

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.

 

Connector

 

  • I-5 to northbound SR-14 — 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

 

Off-Ramp

 

  • Calgrove Blvd. — 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.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.
