Norwalk, CA – Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn is asking the State of California to make immediate safety improvements to the dangerous intersection where the I-105 abruptly ends in Norwalk at Studebaker Road. The intersection had 12 severe crashes in 2023 alone, including two fatalities.

“The way the 105 freeway ends is dangerous and the intersection has become a crash-magnet,” said Supervisor Hahn. “Too many people have been injured or killed because of this badly designed freeway. I am asking the State to put in place safety improvements as soon as possible to safe lives and protect drivers and the Norwalk community.”

Crashes at the intersection have become so common that the medical facility which operated at the intersection was forced to close due to the number of cars that have crashed into it. Last year, Hahn’s office convened representatives from the City of Norwalk, Caltrans, and other agencies to find ways to work together to deliver safety improvements, and since then Norwalk and Caltrans have been discussing what can be done.

Today, Hahn sent a letter to California Secretary of Transportation Toks Omishakin asking the State Transportation Agency to work immediately to install more lighting, signage, and rumble strips along the I-105 freeway leading up to this intersection as a means of preventing future accidents.
