Castaic Brush Fire 98% Contained; I-5 Lanes to Remain Closed


The two right lanes of the northbound Golden State (5) Freeway between Lake Hughes Road and Templin Highway in the Castaic area will remain closed for the time being while officials further evaluate the integrity of the lanes and two retaining walls damaged in the Route Fire, Caltrans said Monday.

The two left lanes remain open, and southbound I-5 lanes remain open.

Caltrans said that now that the wall has stopped smoldering, materials, structural and geotechnical engineers were able to conduct field reviews and found that some of the vertical steel columns were warped, wall tiebacks were broken and horizontal anchors into the dirt may have been damaged.
