About the Project

Caltrans is constructing an HOV lane in each direction on I-5 between the
Hollywood Freeway (SR-170) and SR-118, a distance of 6.8 miles (3.4 miles
in each direction). The project is also widening four undercrossings,
replacing sections of pavement, and building a direct HOV connector at the
I-5/SR-170 interchange. A direct HOV connector allows for
freeway-to-freeway transfers without exiting the carpool lane.

The California Department of Transportation
(Caltrans) will close the following lanes and ramps of the Golden State
Freeway (I-5) as part of a $121 million improvement project to construct
High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lanes in each direction along I-5
between SR-170 to Buena Vista Street. Closures are subject to change.
Detours will be signed.
