Metro Los Angeles | Public Meeting: I-5 Improvements in North County
The Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority, in cooperation with Caltrans District 7, hosted a public meeting at Old Orchard Elementary School on July 26th and 27th to discuss analyzed noise data and projected sound walls.
The project entails capacity enhancements along the I-5 freeway in Santa Clarita and Castaic from the SR-14 interchange to Parker Rd. The enhancements include the addition of HOV (carpool) lanes along the median, extension of the northbound truck lane from Gavin Canyon undercrossing to Calgrove Bl off-ramp, addition of a southbound truck lane from Calgrove Bl on-ramp to SR-14, and the addition of auxiliary lanes (additional outside lanes extending between an on-ramp and a subsequent off-ramp).
The additional 14-mile HOV lanes in both directions would extend existing carpool lanes on the I-5 freeway in San Fernando Valley to Santa Clarita Valley.
Sound walls will be constructed along the freeway. Their locations are determined based on noise studies.
