The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the lanes and connector listed below as part of a $161 million improvement project to construct High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lanes and a direct HOV lane connector at the I-5/SR-14 interchange.

Closures are subject to change. Detours will be signed.

 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.

 About the Project

 This project involves the construction of an elevated two-lane direct HOV connector at the I-5/SR-14 interchange and construction of HOV lanes in both directions of I-5 at the interchange. A direct HOV connector will allow for freeway-to-freeway transfers without exiting the carpool lane.

 The project will relieve congestion, improve traffic flow, enhance safety and improve traffic operations on both freeways at the interchange. The work is part of Caltrans’ effort to provide motorists with a seamless carpool lane network in California.

 Work began in July 2008 and is on track to be completed in summer 2013.

Caltrans thanks the motoring public for their patience and understanding during construction.
