About the I-605 Hot Spots Early Action Projects
The I-605 corridor is part of Southern California’s freeway system, connecting commuters, travelers, and truckers moving between the densely populated Gateway Cities, San Gabriel Valley, Orange County Cities. To ease congestion on this heavily used freeway, the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is environmentally evaluating, designing, and constructing improvements on I-605.
I-605 “Hot Spot” Early Action Projects
Metro completed a Feasibility Study analyzing and identifying several “hot spots” along the SR-91, I-605, and I-405 corridors. These “hot spots” are chronic traffic congestion areas attributed to population/employment growth, increased trucking activity due to economic growth in the goods movement industry, and deficiencies in design, capacity, and operations of an older freeway system.
The Early Action “hots spot” Projects (EAP) on I-605 are currently undergoing environmental assessment or final design approvals and will be constructed within the next 2-5 years. The EAP’s have been developed and advanced to address the short-term needs on I-605. These projects are focused on improving some of the most congested section of I-605.
Proposed Early Action Improvements I-605
Metro and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) in collaboration with the Gateway Cities Council of Governments and the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments, are proposing early action improvements to this corridor, including:
• Operational enhancements
• Ramp reconfigurations to enhance safety
• Arterial intersection enhancements
• Auxillary lane improvements
• Safety features
