Freeway Closures: Tough Now But Better In The Long Run

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will be closing portions of three local freeways in the coming days to try and make your commute a little better.

The closures are due to the construction of a $161 million project where improvements are being made to the Golden State Freeway (I-5), the Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14) and the Foothill Freeway (I-210).

The project involves the construction of an elevated two-lane, direct High Occupancy Vehicle 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 with the estimated completion date in Fall of 2012.

A direct HOV connector will allow motorists a freeway-to-freeway transfer without exiting the carpool lane.

Here are a list of the closures and times:
