A Smoother Ride on I-5

If you travel I-5 between I-210 and SR-118, you’ve probably noticed that your drive has been considerably smoother as of late. That’s because Caltrans has recently completed an $11 million slab replacement project along this stretch of freeway, a distance of nine miles (4.5 miles in each direction). This part of I-5, which runs through Sylmar and the City of San Fernando, has an average daily traffic volume of more than 200,000 vehicles. So to all 200,000 of you, enjoy the drive. And by the way, we have more I-5 pavement projects in the pipeline.
