Delays expected this week for I-5 pavement improvement project

In addition to upcoming Labor Day traffic, Santa Clarita residents can also expect delays starting Sunday on Interstate 5. 

The California Department of Transportation, or Caltrans, plans to implement closures from Sunday to Friday as part of a pavement improvement project on the I-5 between Pico Canyon Road and Highway 14.

Up to three lanes of the northbound and southbound I-5 between the existing truck lane and Lyons Avenue will be closed between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., as well as the Calgrove Boulevard ramp.

At least one lane will be open at all times, but the most restrictive closures will occur between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m.

The entire project aims to widen the freeway and bridges to add a truck lane to the outside of Interstate 5 in both directions by paving the median area and outside shoulder, which will shift the mixed-flow lanes inward.

Closures are subject to change, but signs will be posted for all detours. Closure information for this and other freeway projects is available on the Caltrans website, www.DOT.CA.gov.

Construction began in May 2012 and should be completed in late 2014, according to Caltrans.

New truck lanes will ease traffic delays, improve goods movement, absorb traffic growth due to population increase, and enhance safety by separating truck traffic from passenger vehicles, according to Caltrans.
