It's Getting Real!
Truck Lane Construction in Full Swing
By Tim Whyte
Anyone who commutes each day on Interstate 5 can see the progress firsthand, and once it’s begun it has continued steadily.
These truck lanes are coming. This is no longer just a “proposal” or a great idea. It’s a great idea being brought to reality, as we watch and anticipate its completion.
Under construction between the Newhall Pass and Lyons Avenue/Pico Canyon Road, the new truck lanes will span 3.7 miles and make a tremendous difference in the lives of commuters and long haul truckers alike.
“As the name suggests, a truck lane is a lane that is designated for trucks, so in essence it separates those big 18 wheelers from the other cars on the freeway,” says Kelly Markham, Public Information Officer for Caltrans District 7, in a video profile of the project posted on the Caltrans I-5 information web page, http://i-5info.com.
