District 7 Projects

I-10 HOV (Carpool) Lane Project

THE PROJECT

Construction of one High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lane along the San Bernardino Freeway (I-10) in each direction between the San Gabriel River Freeway (I-605) and Puente Avenue in the City of Baldwin Park.

SUMMARY

Interstate 10 has experienced serious congestion while carrying a substantial amount of traffic. To address this issue, approximately 2.2 miles of carpool lanes will be built in each direction of the freeway. This is the first of three projects that upon completion will offer one continuous HOV lane from downtown Los Angeles to I-15 in San Bernardino County.

BENEFITS

The I-10 HOV project will increase the 485 mile carpool lane system in Los Angeles County, add freeway capacity, reduce congestion by encouraging carpooling, improve traffic flow, and reduce energy consumption, thereby improving air quality. Soundwalls will be constructed to mitigate  noise at  various locations throughout the project boundaries and help improve the quality of life for residents.

COST

$165 million. Flatiron West, Inc. is the contractor on this project.

STATUS

Construction of the Baldwin Park Boulevard bridge and freeway median barrier work has been completed. Bridge work on Athol Street is complete. The Bess Avenue pedestrian bridge overcrossing is currently being replaced to accommodate the freeway widening. Soundwall and retaining wall work is continuing, along with freeway lane construction.

SCHEDULE

Construction began October, 2009 and has an anticipated completion date of fall, 2013.
