Three years after faulty welding in San Diego freeway overpasses prompted a statewide review of 299 highway bridges for earthquake vulnerability, two heavily traveled interchanges near active faults in Los Angeles and Orange counties are only now being tested. One interchange at the juncture of Interstate 5 and the Antelope Valley Freeway is the only spot in the state where highway bridges have collapsed in two previous temblors--the 1971 San Fernando and the 1994 Northridge earthquakes.

Drivers should prepare for fewer lanes on the Antelope Valley Freeway, as Caltrans began a series of closures this weekend from Sand Canyon to Agua Dulce Canyon roads. The closures are to allow workers to replace bridge slabs at the Sand Canyon Road bridge, Caltrans spokeswoman Margie Tiritilli said. The six weekend closures will continue through Jan. 17, weather permitting, Tiritilli said. There will be no freeway work during the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's holiday weekends.
