Caltrans Construction Closures Before Memorial Day Holiday

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the following lanes, ramps and connectors of the Golden State Freeway (I-5), the Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14) and the Foothill Freeway (I-210) as part of a $161-million improvement project to construct High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lanes and a direct HOV lane connector at the I-5/SR-14 interchange.

 

Golden State Freeway (I-5) Closures

OVERNIGHT THURSDAY, MAY 21, THROUGH FRIDAY, MAY 22

From 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. – Southbound I-5 truck route collector road

From 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. – Northbound I-5 truck route collector road

FRIDAY, MAY 22

From 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. – Northbound I-5 connector to northbound SR-14

 

 

Foothill Freeway (I-210) Closures

OVERNIGHT THURSDAY, MAY 21, THROUGH FRIDAY, MAY 22

From 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. – Westbound I-210 connector to northbound I-5

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 directions 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/SR-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.

Also, the northbound I-5 off-ramp at Magic Mountain Parkway will be closing down beginning Sunday evening, May 31, 2009 at 9 P.M. through Friday, June 19, 2009, for a ramp widening project. 

During the time of ramp closure, motorists traveling on Northbound I-5 will be able to access Six Flags Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor Theme Parks, Industrial Center, and Magic Mountain Parkway on the following suggested routes:

  • Exiting McBean Parkway off-ramp, Left Turn on McBean Parkway, Right Turn on The Old Road to Magic Mountain Parkway;
  • Exiting Valencia Boulevard off-ramp, Left Turn on Valencia Boulevard, Right Turn on The Old Road to Magic Mountain Parkway;
  • Exiting SR 126/Newhall Ranch Road, Left Turn on SR 126 onto I-5 southbound to Magic Mountain Parkway exit.

All businesses in the surrounding construction area will remain open during these construction activities.  There will be detour signs posted for alternate routes along I-5 northbound at various strategic locations for accessibility to Magic Mountain Parkway.
