Posted: February 10, 2014 12:30 p.m.
Updated: February 10, 2014 12:30 p.m.
 

Special Closure Notes

Southbound I-5 between the I-5/SR-170 interchange and Sheldon Street will be closed intermittently at night through April 2014, 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. See the attached notice for more information.

Through February 2014, crews will demolish the median barrier on I-5 between Van Nuys Boulevard and SR-118. The two lanes closest to the median in both directions will be closed when this work is underway, between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Arleta — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to implement the closures listed below as part of a project that is constructing High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lanes and a direct HOV lane connector at the I-5/SR-170 interchange.

Ramp closures will be nonconsecutive. Detours will be signed. Closures are subject to change.

Residents may hear some construction noise, but it will not exceed levels permitted by state and federal regulations.

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.

Closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website.

For real-time traffic information, visit quickmap.dot.ca.gov, go511.com, or call 5-1-1.

I think Caltrans missed an opportunity to make a truck bypass lane on the 5 south at the 170 split. There is an on ramp for Branford Ave to the south 5 that could have been converted to a truck bypass. Trucks going south on the 5 have to be in the center lanes and if trucks are also going to take the 170 there could be 4 lanes with trucks across the freeway.
