Caltrans: I-5 Lane Closures This Week

The California Department of Transportation plans to close the lanes listed below as part of a $72 million 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. Closures are subject to change. Detours will be signed.

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 here

Golden State Freeway (I-5) Closures, Monday, December 17 – Saturday, December 22:

  • Up to three lanes of northbound I-5 between the end of the existing truck lane and Lyons Ave. will be closed between 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. (At least one lane will be open at all times. The most restrictive closures will occur between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m.)
  • Up to three lanes of southbound I-5 between Lyons Ave. and the end of the existing truck lane will be closed between 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. (At least one lane will be open at all times. The most restrictive closures will occur between midnight and 4 a.m.)

About the Project

The project is adding a truck lane to the outside of southbound I-5 in 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. Click here for more information.
