Northbound I-5 Lanes to be Closed Through Labor Day Weekend

Caltrans and CHP Newhall announced two lanes of northbound I-5 will be closed through the Labor Day weekend to address emergency repairs that were damaged in the Route Fire. 

CASTAIC — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) today announced that the two right lanes of northbound Interstate 5 will be closed through the Labor Day weekend to address emergency repairs that were damaged in the Route Fire that started on August 31. The lanes will be closed between Lake Hughes Road and Templin Highway in northern Los Angeles County while the two left lanes remain open. Southbound I-5 lanes have re-opened.

Maintenance crews will clean drainage systems, replace signs, repair and replace burned guardrails and assess damaged retaining walls.

With the anticipated increase of traffic over the holiday weekend, CHP will increase staffing and patrols to assist motorists.

Caltrans and CHP advise motorists to expect heavy delays and to delay trips or use alternate routes as much as possible: SR-126 to US-101 to SR-166 to I-5, or SR-14 to SR-58 to SR-99 or I-5.

Real-time travel information can be found at Caltrans QuickMap or by calling 1-800-427-7623.
