Widening of the Interstate 5, Golden State and Santa Ana Freeways with HOV lanes

(1/2) > >>

ACSCmapcollector:
I have looked on Google Maps for Satellite and zoomed in on Interstate 5 Golden State Freeway, in the city of Burbank, CA as well as the Interstate 605, San Gabriel River Freeway interchange with Interstate 5, Santa Ana Freeway with construction of HOV lanes and redoing some major interchanges with arterial streets. Does anyone have known about any new projects to extend them beyond Interstate 5/CA 134 and to Interstate 5/Interstate 710?

A setup like the section of the recently reconstructed 635 in North Dallas would be ideal for I-5 between 710 and CA 134. Ideally 14 lanes would be nice. One can dream I guess. I donít see it anytime soon.

I don't think there is enough room on either Interstate 5 (Old U.S. 6 & 99) Golden State Freeway, Interstate 5 (Old U.S. 101) Santa Ana Freeway to widen to 14 lanes, when I traveled down to Disneyland via the Pacific Surfliner route via Amtrak railroad to Anaheim, California and went over the Santa Ana Freeway on Katella Avenue over the widening there of Interstate 5, Santa Ana Freeway with two HOV lanes near the median strip.

There probably isnít room for 14 lanes but this would be ideal anyways.

The way that Los Angeles and its suburbs have grown, there would not be that much room at all.  Including what happened with Orange County during the 1960s.  As Interstate 5/U.S. 101 Santa Ana Freeway.
