Multi-million Dollar Project On The Santa Ana Freeway To Provide Congestion Relief

Caltrans and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) recently began construction on the $215 million Florence Avenue Project, which will add one carpool lane in addition to a general lane in each direction of Interstate 5 from Santa Fe Springs to Downey.

Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty believes that the project will not only improve traffic flow for the more than 170,000 commuters who traverse it daily but also improve the area's economy, enhance safety, and ease congestion on surface streets.

The Florence Avenue Project is part of a larger $1.6 billion I-5 widening project that will extend from the Orange County line to the San Gabriel River Freeway (Interstate 605). Construction of the Florence Avenue Project is slated to be completed in fall 2019.

Interstate 5 is one of the most important highways in California, if not the whole west coast. The stretch from the Los Angeles/Orange County line to I-605 has not been upgraded for many years. The long-awaited expansion project is expected to have a significant economic impact since I-5 is part of the Tier 1 Freight Network and provides vital connectivity to and between key freight gateways and regions.

Funding for the project comes from a combination of federal, state, and local resources, including the State Highway operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) and Metro.
