A short stretch of the southbound Golden State (5) Freeway in Arleta will be closed for four overnight hours later this week as part of a carpool-lane project at the Hollywood (170) Freeway interchange.
The southbound 5 Freeway will be closed between the 170 Freeway and Sheldon Street beginning at 11:59 p.m. Thursday and ending at 4 a.m. Friday, according to Caltrans.
Caltrans is adding carpool lanes in the area and constructing a direct HOV lane connector at the 5/170 interchange.
At 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, the southbound 5 Freeway connector to southbound 170 will be closed, with the ramp reopening at 5 a.m. Thursday.
