California Department Of Transportation To Implement Closures On I-5

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to implement closures 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).

Closure dates will be from Aug. 25 through Aug. 30.

Closures are as follows:

  • Up to three lanes of northbound I-5 between the end of the existing truck lane and Lyons Ave. daily from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

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

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

  • Calgrove Blvd. off-ramp from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Ramp closures will be staggered and detours will be signed for convenience. 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:

About the Project

The project will add a truck lane to the outside of the 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 Ave. to SR-14, a distance of 3.7 miles.

The goal of this project is to ease traffic delays, improve movement of goods, absorb traffic growth, 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.
