Caltrans is contructing a carpool lane on the Golden State Freeway (I-5) between the Ronald Reagan Freeway (SR-118) and the Hollywood Freeway (SR-170).
The week of May 6, crews will remove remaining temporary structure supports and complete road surface finishing on the new northbound I-5/SR-170 connector. For the safety of motorists, this work will require night closures of northbound I-5 between Sheldon Street and Osborne Street and southbound I-5 between the I-5/SR-170 interchange and Sheldon Street, as well as night closures of southbound I-5 on-ramps at Terra Bella Street and Osborne Street. See dates and times at right.
Northbound I-5 detour: Traffic will be detoured off the freeway at Lankershim Boulevard and onto San Fernando Road. Motorists will re-enter northbound I-5 from Osborne Street. Detour signs will be posted.
Southbound I-5 detour: Traffic will be detoured off I-5 at the I-5/SR-170 interchange and onto southbound SR-170. Motorists will re-enter southbound I-5 from Laurel Canyon Boulevard. Detour signs will be posted.
You may hear construction noise during the closure, but it will not exceed levels allowed by state and federal regulations. You may also notice extra lighting and a temporary increase in traffic.
