The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will conduct an extended closure this weekend on the westbound Foothill Freeway (I-210) connector to the northbound Golden State Freeway (I-5). The work is part of the I-5/Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14) Direct HOV Connector Project.
The connector will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday, May 29, until 5 a.m. Monday, June 1.
This closure is necessary to allow crews to replace and re-stripe the pavement.
Possible alternate route: westbound Ronald Reagan Freeway (SR-118). Signs will be posted with detour information.
About the project: The I-5/SR-14 Direct High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV, or carpool lane) Connector Project involves construction of an elevated two-lane direct HOV connector at the I-5 and SR-14 interchange and construction of HOV lanes in both directions of I-5 at the interchange. The direct HOV connector will allow motorists a freeway-to-freeway transfer without exiting the carpool lane.
The project will relieve congestion, improve traffic flow, enhance safety and improve traffic operations of both freeways at the I-5/SR-14 interchange.
