I-5 HOV Reconstruction
North Los Angeles County | MTA Los Angeles County
As a major project sub-consultant to Hills International TRC has provided construction management services since January 1, 2021. The $679-million project, the 14-mile corridor between State Route 14 in Santa Clarita and Parker Road in Castaic California is specifically designed to make the I-5 freeway safer, and improve the movement of freight and people while accommodating the expected population growth in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Improvements include the addition of one High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction along the corridor. The project improvements will increase economic vitality in the entire region while providing key safety improvements for all commuters. In addition to new HOV lanes in both directions, project improvements include a two-mile extension of truck lanes, construction of sound walls in select locations to reduce freeway noise, the addition of auxiliary lanes at multiple locations, and the replacement of the Weldon Canyon Road Bridge. These improvements will increase freeway safety by removing trucks from the general-purpose lanes and adding more space for merging.
