Closures for SR-14 Pavement Rehabilitation Project

Posted: August 24, 2012 4:23 p.m.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to close the lanes and ramps listed below as part of a $40 million pavement rehabilitation project on the Antelope Freeway (SR-14) between Via Princessa and Mountain Springs Road. Ramp closures will be signed at least one ramp in advance to give motorists an opportunity to exit before the closure. Closures are subject to change. Detours will be signed.

Sections of roadway may be rough where slabs have been replaced. This is NOT permanent. The pavement will be smooth when the grinding operation is complete.

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.

Lane closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website: http://www.lcswebreports.dot.ca.gov/lcswebreports/

NOTE: Southbound SR-14 from Angeles Forest Highway to Sierra Highway will be closed from 11 p.m. on Friday, August 24, to 7 a.m. on Saturday, August 25.

Closures for Sunday, August 26, to Friday, August 31, are below.

There will be no closures for this project over the Labor Day Weekend, Friday, August 31, at 6 a.m. through Tuesday, September 4, at 6 a.m.

About the Project

This project will replace slabs in both directions of SR-14 between Mountain Springs Road in the City of Palmdale and Via Princessa in the City of Santa Clarita, a distance of about 20.5 miles. Additionally, the project will replace slabs on ramps, lay new asphalt on shoulders, seal joints and re-stripe the freeway.

This $40 million project, which will be completed in September 2012, will extend the life of the pavement, reduce maintenance costs and closures, and provide a smoother ride for motorists. The contractor is Security Paving of Sun Valley, Calif.

Most of the construction will be completed at night to minimize inconvenience to motorists, though there will be some work during the day on shoulders. Motorists should expect multiple simultaneous closures in different locations within the project limits. Closures will be signed well in advance of the closure location.
