Issue
ISSUE

The I-5 South Capacity Improvements project includes freeway widening and construction of HOV lanes and other improvements between I-605 and the Orange County Line. The State of California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) designed and is managing construction of the Projects.

Valley View (Segment 2) between Artesia Boulevard and North Fork Coyote Creek is the last segment of the I-5 South Capacity Improvements project for which a construction contract was approved on July 15, 2016. Construction on Valley View began in November, 2016 and is expected to be completed in 2022.

To mitigate traffic impacts resulting from construction as required by the project's environmental document, Caltrans developed Traffic Management Plans (TMPs) for each construction stage. Caltrans traffic modeling suggested that the detour routes identified in the TMP would provide the needed capacity for the anticipated volumes. However after the contract was awarded, Parkway La Mirada Association expressed concerns over the ingress and egress during the construction staging around the properties at 16810 - 16900 Valley View Avenue and has requested implementation of appropriate mitigation measures to remedy the traffic impacts on their properties during construction period.
