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

Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14) Closures
Today
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. — Sierra Highway on-ramp to northbound SR-14
From 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. — Southbound SR-14 connector to southbound I-5

Overnight Thursday
From 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. — Southbound SR-14 connector road to southbound I-5
From 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. — Southbound SR-14 connector to southbound I-5
Friday
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. — Sierra Highway on-ramp to northbound SR-14

I-5 connector to northbound SR-14
Today
From 1 a.m. to 4 a.m. — Up to three lanes of I-5 from Sierra Highway to Balboa Blvd.
From 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. — One lane of the northbound I-5 connector to northbound SR-14

Overnight Thursday
From 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. — One lane of the northbound I-5 connector to northbound SR-14

Friday
From 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. — Northbound I-5 connector to northbound SR-14

This project involves the construction of an elevated two-lane direct HOV 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. A direct HOV connector will allow motorists a freeway-to-freeway transfer without exiting the carpool lane.

Construction of this direct HOV connector and HOV lanes is intended to relieve congestion, improve traffic flow, enhance safety and improve traffic operations of both freeways at the I-5/SR-14 Interchange. Preliminary work on this interchange improvement project began in July 2008. Work is estimated to complete in fall 2012.

These closures are weather permitting and subject to change. Signs and detours will be posted to assist motorists.
