- Relieving I-5 congestion

- Revitalizing our I-5 community
The Golden State Freeway (I-5) in the San Fernando Valley has been widened to add a High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) or carpool lanes in each direction between the Hollywood Freeway (SR-170) and Buena Vista Street. Additionally, new soundwalls were added to accommodate for the widened freeway.
This freeway enhancement project, which spans a distance of 3.4 miles in each direction improved I-5 traffic flow, relieved congestion and encourages ride sharing.
The project has been completed and is now in the plant establishment phase. During this phase, the plants
are monitored to ensure that they grow as originally planned.
