Clean up the traffic mess (Theme week: Looking down)

I5 thru Downey HOV work

This view of the I-5 (Santa Ana freeway), looking down from a pedestrian overpass, shows the roadwork that is in progress.

I5 thru Downey overpass shadowThis freeway is the most unpredictable of the freeways that surround Downey. You never know if there will be traffic or not, regardless of the time of day.

This section of the freeway is getting an HOV (high-occupancy vehicle) lane in addition to an extra general purpose lane. Maybe this improvement will eliminate some of our traffic guesswork.

  1. The fence gives it a different and original touch. Very good shot!
