I-5 North Capacity Enhancement

Limits and Existing Conditions
This Element extends from the SR 14 freeway to Parker Road in northern Los Angeles County.   This Element is approximately 13.5 miles long and it traverses north-south through unincorporated Los Angeles County, the City of Los Angeles, and the City of Santa Clarita.  Through the Element limits, the I-5 provides for four general purpose lanes in both the northbound and southbound directions with auxiliary lanes between select interchanges.  The land use along the Element limits includes commercial, light industrial, agriculture, residential, and open space.  There are nine interchanges with local arterials within the Element limits.

Scope
The scope includes designing, constructing, maintaining and operating one HOT lane in each direction as well as auxiliary lanes at various locations from the terminus of the existing High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes south of SR 14 to Parker Road, and a truck lane in the southbound direction from Calgrove to SR 14.  To accommodate the Element improvements and provide the Department’s standard lane widths, outside widening of the existing I-5 will be required.  This widening will include, but not be limited to, widening the existing bridge structures, constructing new and/or modifying retaining walls, grading, landscaping, ramp improvements, electrical facilities improvements/modifications, drainage facility modifications/improvement, water quality best management practices, signing, pavement delineation, and utilities.  The scope includes maintenance and, as appropriate, periodic rehabilitation of all facilities within the Element limits.  In addition, the scope includes operating and maintaining the field-side toll collection and toll revenue data communication systems, along with development of a Customer Service Center to be subsequently operated and maintained by Metro.

I-5 North Pavement Rehabilitation

Limits and Existing Conditions
Limits and existing conditions are similar to the I-5 North Capacity Enhancement Element.

Scope
This scope consists of designing, reconstructing, rehabilitating, and maintaining, the pavement within the Element limits.  Lanes 3 and 4 will be fully reconstructed; lanes 1 and 2 will be rehabilitated in an appropriate manner depending on pavement type and performance specification requirements.

SR71 Gap Elements

Limits and Existing Conditions
The SR 71 Gap Elements extend from the SR 60 freeway to the I-10 in Los Angeles County.  Combined they are approximately 4 miles in length and are located within the City of Pomona.  The SR 71 Gap is defined by two Elements: I-10 to Mission Boulevard (North Segment) and Mission Boulevard to Rio Rancho Road (South Segment).  Through the SR 71 Gap Elements limits, SR 71 is currently classified as a 4-lane expressway with signalized, at-grade intersections with local arterials.

Scope
The scope includes designing, constructing, maintaining and operating an 8-lane freeway to include one HOV lane and three general purpose lanes in both the northbound and southbound direction.  The scope includes maintenance and, as appropriate, periodic rehabilitation of all facilities within the Element limits.

South Segment Element
The South Segment Element, approximately 2.3 miles long, will reconstruct the existing SR 71 from SR-60 to Rio Rancho Road to provide three general purpose lanes and one HOV lane in both the northbound and southbound direction, and one pedestrian overcrossing at 9th Street.  To accommodate the Element improvements and achieve compliance with the Department’s current standards, reconstruction of the SR71 will require right-of-way acquisition, new pavement, widening existing bridge structures, retaining wall construction/reconstruction, grading, landscaping, ramp/interchange improvements, electrical facility relocation/removal/installation, drainage facility improvements, water quality best management practices, signing, pavement delineation, and utility relocation.

North Segment Element
The North Segment Element, approximately 2 miles long, will reconstruct the existing SR 71 from Mission Boulevard to the I-10 to provide four general purpose lanes and one HOV lane in both the northbound and southbound direction and two grade separated rail crossings .  The North Segment Element crosses over two active Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) rail lines that accommodate both freight and passenger rail service.  The bridge structures at these crossings do not provide standard minimum vertical clearance required by UPRR and will require complete replacement to meet the current minimum clearance standards.  The Element also includes right-of-way acquisition, new pavement, retaining wall construction/reconstruction, grading, landscaping, auxiliary lanes with ramp/interchange improvements, electrical facility relocation/removal/installation, drainage facility improvements, water quality best management practices, signing, pavement delineation, freeway fiber optics and associated traffic management system features and utility relocation.

Soundwall Packages 10 and 10A

Limits and Existing Conditions
The Soundwall Packages 10 and 10A Element is located along the I-210 freeway.  Soundwall Package 10 is located along two sections with the overall limits extending from Fair Oaks Avenue east to Santa Anita Avenue in Los Angeles County.  The first section is approximately 1.2 miles long extending from Fair Oaks Avenue to Wilson Avenue through the City of Pasadena.  The second section is 1.4 miles long extending from Baldwin Avenue to Santa Anita Avenue through the City of Arcadia.  Soundwall Package 10A is located along the eastbound and westbound side of I-210, from Baldwin Avenue to Santa Anita Avenue in the City of Arcadia.  Through the Soundwall Package 10 and 10A Element limits, the I-210 provides 4 general purpose lanes and one HOV in each direction with auxiliary lanes between select interchanges. The land use along the Element limits include commercial and residential.

Soundwall Package 10 Scope
The scope includes designing and constructing soundwalls, or noise barriers, along the I-210.  The total length of soundwalls in Soundwall Package 10 is approximately 12,500 linear feet in two general areas.  The soundwalls vary in height from approximately 10 feet to just over 14 feet.  The soundwalls will be constructed on existing ground or atop retaining walls.  The Element has secured environmental acceptance.  The design plans and specifications for Soundwall Package 10 are currently at 100%, h owever, they were prepared based on the Department’s Standard Plans and Standard Specifications 2006 edition.  The Developer will be required to update the design and construct Soundwall Package 10 in accordance with the Department’s 2010 edition Standard Plans and Standard Specifications.  The changes required to meet the 2010 Standard Plans and Standard Specifications should not affect the current environmental acceptance; however the Developer will be required to review and coordinate any updates for environmental acceptance that may be necessary.

Soundwall Package 10A Scope
The scope includes noise analysis, design and constructing approximately 3,800 linear feet of soundwalls, or noise barriers, along the eastbound and westbound I-210.  This Element has been environmentally cleared, and its design will be the responsibility of the Developer.  The soundwall design height is expected to vary between approximately 10 feet and 14 feet.  The walls will be designed and constructed in accordance with the Department’s 2010 edition Standard Plans and Standard Specifications.

The Soundwall Packages 10 and 10A Element scope includes five years of structural warranty from date of acceptance and three years of plant establishment support from date of acceptance.  The Developer will have no other maintenance responsibility regarding the soundwalls ; routine maintenance and graffiti removal will be the responsibility of the Department from the date of acceptance of this Element.
