Conducted by OCTA and Caltrans, two public hearings in May attracted more than 120 people who came to learn more about a proposed plan to improve the I-5 Freeway between I-405 to SR-55.
This span of I-5 has local, regional and even national significance as it connects to local residential communities, regional destinations and serves as a goods movement corridor.
Members of the public learned about a proposal to build one general purpose lane in both the northbound and southbound directions and convert existing HOV lanes to continuous access to make them faster and more efficient. With continuous access, carpoolers can enter or exit at any point along the route.
The public hearings also provided the community an opportunity to comment on the draft environmental document. Comments on the document will be accepted through June 8. To view the draft environmental document online, click here.
