Construction Update: February 2012
[scrollGallery id=5 useCaptions=true]
If you drive I-5 in north Los Angeles County on a regular basis, chances are you’ve been watching the new I-5/SR direct connector take shape. When completed, the direct connector will allow you to transfer between I-5 and SR-14 without ever leaving the carpool lane, hence direct connector.
So what’s happening with this project, now in its fourth year? Well, good news! The project is 80% complete. It’s on time and within budget, and will be finished in mid-2013. Currently crews are working on the bridge median and paving. Check out the slideshow below for a look at the construction now underway, including exclusive photos of work you can’t see from the freeway. It’s pretty impressive, even if you don’t know anything about freeway construction — definitely worth a click-through.
