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

Caltrans will continue repaving the Ventura Freeway (US 101) from the US 101/SR-134/SR-170 Interchange to the US 101/I-405 Interchange, Friday, August 28 to Sunday, August 30.  Nearby residents may hear equipment noise as the crews replace the existing pavement.

Up to three lanes of northbound US 101, west of the 101/134/170 Interchange to the 101/405 Interchange will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.  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 on US 101 from the 101/134/170 Interchange in Sherman Oaks to Los Virgenes Road in Calabasas.  

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.  The project is expected to finish in fall 2016.  

Remember to Be Work Zone Alert.
