The project started on March 6, 2018. We'll see it in full-swing this fall and it will continue for 5+ years.
OCTA in cooperation with The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is widening the San Diego Freeway (I-405) between State Route 73 (SR-73) and Interstate 605 (I-605).
The project will improve 16 miles of I-405 between the SR-73 freeway in Costa Mesa and I-605 near the L.A. County line.
The project includes adding one regular lane in each direction from Euclid Street to I-605 and making improvements to freeway entrances, exits and bridges. There will also be a toll lane at Warner in FV.
It also will construct the 405 Express Lanes, two lanes in each direction from SR-73 to I-605.
This 405 Freeway expansion project has started and will really kick into high gear soon. It is scheduled to be completed in 2023. Please keep in mind, all work will be done simultaneously. Our surrounding streets will be much more heavily traveled for 5+ long years while this work is being done! We'll also have quite alot of lane closures and detours on the 405 Freeway at Euclid.
Did you know all the 7 bridges in Fountain Valley will come down and be rebuilt? The good thing is that it's not all at the same time. Euclid/Ellis, Slater and Talbert will be first.
Did you know we’ll have lots of freeway and road detours, construction noise, and extra traffic on our city streets for at least 5+ years?
Did you know Ward and Magnolia Streets will have 4 lanes and 2 bicycle lanes? All this freeway, bridge and road work is totally separate from the FV Crossings Project. Even visitors to our city will be affected, not just our residents and businesses.
