Interstate 405 between SR-73 and I-605
The Public Comment period was from May 18, 2012 to July 17, 2012.
Currently, Caltrans is responding to public comments received during the public review period and working on the Final Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report.
The Interstate 405 (I-405) Improvement Project proposes to widen the corridor by adding: one general purpose (GP) lane in each direction between Euclid Street and Interstate 605 (I-605); or two GP lanes in each direction between Brookhurst/Euclid Streets and I-605; or one GP lane between Euclid Street and I-605 and one tolled Express Lane in each direction between State Route 73 (SR-73) and State Route 22 (SR-22) east of I-405 to be managed jointly as a tolled Express Facility with two lanes in each direction between SR-73 and I-605. The tolled Express Facility would operate so that HOV2s would be tolled and HOV3+ would either be free or receive a discount. The proposed action would improve I-405 in Orange County for approximately 16 miles between 0.2-mile south of Bristol Street and 1.4 miles north of I-605, as well as portions of SR-22, SR-73, and I-605 by reducing congestion and improving lane continuity through the corridor.
