The goal is to add one HOV lane and one mixed-flow traffic lane in each direction along a 1½-mile stretch of Highway 5 at Valley View Avenue from the Artesia Boulevard Underwater Crossing to the north fork of Coyote Creek at La Mirada.
Separately, an 11-mile stretch of I-5 will see overnight lane closures, starting at 11 p.m., through Feb. 11. for pavement repairprimarily between Hollywood Way and Roscoe Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley.
