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 at the interchange. The direct HOV connector enables 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 spring 2013. The direct HOV connector opened to traffic in December 2012. Caltrans thanks the motoring public for their patience and understanding during construction.
