Project Overview

View the project map

The Golden State freeway (I-5) is being widened to add a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) or carpool lane in each direction between the Ronald Reagan Freeway (SR-118) and Hollywood Freeway (SR-170) in the cities of Arleta and Pacoima.

In addition, a direct HOV connector is being constructed at the I-5/SR-170 interchange so motorists can
travel from one freeway directly to another without leaving the HOV lane. A new mixed-flow connector from
northbound SR-170 to northbound I-5 is also under construction. The project will improve traffic flow, relieve
congestion and encourage ridesharing.
