Ventura Freeway (US 101) Pavement Project in San Fernando Valley

Southbound US 101
Caltrans will begin a pavement rehabilitation project on Monday, July 6 on the Ventura Freeway (US 101) from the 101/134/170 Interchange (Sherman Oaks) to Las Virgenes Canyon Road (Calabasas).  The project is expected to finish in fall 2016.  Nearby residents may hear equipment noise as the crews replace the existing pavement.

Closures
The first nightly closure will begin on northbound US 101, west of the 101/134/170 Interchange.  Up to two lanes will be closed from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Saturday.  Closures are subject to change.   

The purpose of this project is to preserve and extend the life of the existing pavement and improve ride quality.  The pavement on north- and southbound US 101, connectors, and ramps will be rehabilitated by using rubberized hot mix asphalt, Portland concrete cement, and pre-cast concrete slabs.  The existing metal beam guardrail (metal and wood barriers) will also be replaced to enhance safety.  

This $62 million contract was awarded to Myers and Sons Construction, LP of Sacramento, California.  The project is funded by the State Highway Operation and Protection Program.  

Remember to Be Work Zone Alert.
