Construction Update: San Bernardino Freeway (I-10) Carpool Lane Work Continues

If you have driven the San Bernardino Freeway (I-10) in the San Gabriel Valley in the last couple of years, you may have noticed the heavy amount of construction activities in the area. Late last year, District 7 celebrated the completion of the 10/605 direct-connector project  in Baldwin Park. Although the direct-connector has already benefited motorists, work continues on the I-10 High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lane construction project. 

Retaining wall construction on eastbound I-10 near Vincent Avenue.

Once completed, the I-10 HOV construction project will offer one continuous HOV lane from downtown Los Angeles to San Bernardino County, a distance of approximately 40 miles. Currently, construction is taking place on I-10 between Puente Avenue in Baldwin Park and Citrus Street in West Covina. Soundwall and retaining wall construction continues, along with drainage system work and outside shoulder widening. In addition, the eastbound Pacific Avenue/West Covina Parkway off-ramp was recently closed for widening work. The ramp will remain closed through November, 2016. 
A total of seven bridges will be widened as part of construction activities.

Thirteen soundwalls will be constructed throughout the project limits.

This $193 million project is anticipated to complete by spring, 2019. For more project information, please contact Caltrans Public Affairs. Caltrans reminds you to Slow For the Cone Zone.
