Plan Ahead, Leave Early If Traveling On I-5 Near Grapevine

North of Santa Clarita near “Grapevine” — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) advises motorists traveling over the upcoming holiday on the Golden State Freeway (I-5) north of Santa Clarita at Templin Highway near the “Grapevine” — to please PLAN AHEAD and LEAVE EARLY to avoid expected holiday-related delays — due to an ongoing lane closure on northbound I-5 at Templin Highway for mudslide and slope stabilization repairs.

Three northbound lanes and four southbound lanes remain open to motorists. In Santa Clarita, The Old Road is a suggested alternate route during periods of congestion. For road conditions in California (excluding unforeseen traffic incidents) please call the Caltrans Highway Information Number at 1-800-427-ROAD (7623).  By speaking the number of the route desired – or using a touch-tone telephone and simply entering the highway/route number of interest, callers can get up-do-date road conditions on any highway in California.

Motorists are also encouraged to tune into local radio stations for up to-the-minute freeway reports before starting out on trips. Caltrans thanks the motoring public for their patience during these roadway repairs.
