This will allow traffic to connect from Alondra Boulevard / Marquardt Avenue directly to Valley View Avenue. This will also allow traffic to exit southbound I-5 at the Valley View Avenue off ramp; turn right onto Valley View Avenue; and turn right again onto S. Firestone Boulevard to access businesses between Marquardt Avenue and Artesia  Boulevard.  Photo of location below. See green arrows:
