About the Truck Lanes Project

This project is widening the freeway and bridges to add a truck lane to the outside of I-5 in both directions by paving the median area and outside shoulder, and shifting the mixed-flow lanes inward. Three median retaining walls and two short sections of outside retaining walls will be built to accommodate this widening. The southbound truck lane will extend from Pico Canyon Road/Lyons Avenue to SR-14 (3.7 miles), while the northbound lane will run from SR-14 to Gavin Canyon (1.4 miles).

The new truck lanes 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 late 2014. Funds administered by Metro. For more information, visit I-5info.com.

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.
