The I-605 corridor is located at the heart of Southern California’s freeway system, connecting commuters, travelers, and truckers moving between the densely populated Gateway Cities, San Gabriel Valley, the Inland Empire, and the rest of the region. The I-605, known as the “San Gabriel River Freeway,” is heavily used for local, regional, interregional, and interstate travel and commerce, including thousands of trucks traveling between the Gateway Cities and various points inland for the distribution of goods. The Corridor is home to ethnically-diverse and historically-rich neighborhoods and supports thriving commercial and industrial centers.
Metro, in collaboration with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the Gateway Cities Council of Governments (GCCOG) and the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG), is proposing significant mobility and operational improvements along the I-605 between I-10 and I-105.
