Crews are nearly finished installing 55 mph speed limit signs on I-405 through the project area. The new signs will formally reduce the speed limit from 65 mph to 55 mph for the safety of the traveling public and their crews.
The new signs, which will be in place for the duration of the project, allow the California Highway Patrol to enforce the lower speed limit.
Caltrans advises motorists to slow down and proceed with caution whenever signs of highway work are present. This will significantly reduce the potential for incidents on the freeway. Also, motorists whose vehicles become disabled should pull off at the nearest exit if possible.
Additionally, state law allows for the doubling of traffic fines for violations that occur in highway work areas.
Please slow down and stay alert when traveling through the I-405 Improvement project area.
