The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the following lanes, ramps and connectors of the Golden State, Antelope Valley and Foothill Freeways as part of a new $156-million improvement project to construct carpool lanes and a direct carpool lane connector at the I-5/14 interchange.

 In order to facilitate construction work as part of this improvement project, the entrance to the southbound I-5 carpool lane has been temporarily relocated south of SR-14 to just near the I-210 interchange.

 

This project involves the construction of an elevated two-lane direct HOV connector at the I-5 and State Route 14 interchange and construction of HOV lanes in both the north and south direction of I-5 at the Interchange. A direct HOV connector will allow motorists a freeway-to-freeway transfer without exiting the carpool lane.

 

Construction of this direct HOV connector and HOV lanes will relieve congestion, improve traffic flow, enhance safety and improve traffic operations of both freeways at the I-5/14 Interchange. This important improvement project is helping to provide motorists with a seamless carpool lane network in California.

 

Preliminary work on this interchange improvement project began in July, 2008.  Work is estimated to complete in the fall of 2012. Caltrans thanks the motoring public for their patience and understanding during this highway improvement project.  These closures are weather-permitting and subject to change.  Signs and detours will be posted to assist  motorists.
