Local Freeway Closures To Be Aware Of This Week

khts_caltrans

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the following lanes, ramps, connectors and collector roads of the Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14), the Foothill Freeway (I-210) and the Golden State Freeway (I-5)

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. Closures are subject to change.

The closures will be in effect now through Friday, September 11.

 

Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14) Closures

  • One lane of the Southbound SR-14 Connector to Southbound I-5
    TIME: 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Southbound SR-14 Collector Road to Southbound I-5
    TIME: 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • Southbound SR-14 Connector to Southbound I-5
    TIME: 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.

 

Foothill Freeway (I-210) Closures

  • Westbound I-210 Collector Road to Northbound I-5
    TIME: 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.


Golden State Freeway (I-5) Closures

  • One lane of the Northbound I-5 Connector to Northbound SR-14
    TIME: 5 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Southbound Truck Route Collector Road
    TIME: 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.
  • Northbound Truck Route Collector Road
    TIME: 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • Southbound I-5 from SR-14 to Balboa Boulevard
    TIME: 11:59 p.m. to 4 a.m.
  • Northbound I-5 from Balboa Boulevard to SR-14
    TIME: 11:59 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • Northbound I-5 Connector to Northbound SR-14
  • TIME: 11:59 p.m. to 5 a.m.

 

This project involves the construction of an elevated two-lane direct HOV connector at the I-5/SR-14 interchange and construction of HOV lanes in both directions of I-5 at the interchange. A direct HOV connector will allow for freeway-to-freeway transfers without exiting the carpool lane.

 

Caltrans hopes the project will relieve congestion, improve traffic flow, enhance safety and improve traffic operations on both freeways at the interchange.

Work began in July 2008 and is on track to wrap up in the fall of 2012.
