Over 120 Porter Ranch Stakeholders joined the Porter Ranch Neighborhood Council Meeting on September 14 in pursuit of answers to the question of what is going on with the closed Reseda off ramp from the westbound 118. Caltrans was on hand to explain why the off ramp was closed and what the plan was to reopen it.
The source of the closure was the collapse of lanes two and three of the off ramp caused by a broken connection at the storm drain manhole on Rinaldi. The broken connection is 25′ underground. The drainpipe that is underneath the off ramp has also collapsed.
