Westbound traffic on the Simi Valley Freeway in Granada Hills will shift to the eastbound lanes starting Sunday night or Monday night as construction begins on the westbound lanes, Caltrans said. Traffic returned to the eastbound lanes Friday after Fontana-based Brutoco Engineering & Construction finished rebuilding that side of the bridges at San Fernando Mission Boulevard and Bull Creek. The bridges had crumbled in the Northridge earthquake.

The earthquake-shattered interchange between the southbound Antelope Valley Freeway and the northbound Golden State Freeway is scheduled to reopen Thursday, leaving just one reconstruction project at the same site to be completed before the region's freeway system returns to full strength. The final project--the transition from the southbound Golden State to the northbound Antelope Valley--should be completed in early November, Caltrans spokesman Jim Drago said Tuesday.

In a setback for northern San Fernando Valley commuters, reconstruction of the earthquake-damaged Simi Valley Freeway--originally scheduled for completion next week--will not be finished until the middle of next month, Caltrans said Tuesday. Officials had expected to reopen all lanes of the bridges at San Fernando Mission Boulevard and Bull Creek next Tuesday after workers finished repairing the westbound side of the spans, which were considerably weakened in the Northridge earthquake.

To the relief of many traffic-maddened motorists, all five westbound lanes of the Simi Valley Freeway--the last major bottleneck from the Northridge quake--will reopen this weekend, a top state transportation official confirmed Tuesday. The eastbound lanes will follow Sept. 7, making all 10 lanes available to motorists at the San Fernando Mission Boulevard and Bull Creek overpasses, despite construction delays that once were expected to push the reopening date back to mid-September.

The Los Angeles region's recovery from the Northridge earthquake reached a milestone Friday morning as officials reopened key sections of the Golden State-Antelope Valley freeway interchange, naming it in memory of the motorcycle officer who plunged to his death there after the temblor. Little fanfare attended the reopening, unlike the elaborate ceremonies that celebrated the completion of two other major freeway restoration projects earlier this year.
