On Sunday Oct 16 Community Outreach Chair Brad Klimovitch presents Boy Scout Troop 104 Senior Patrol Leader Cory Neff with a Community Service Appreciation Certificate for Boy Scout Troop 104 contributions at the “4th Annual Movies in the Park” event.
We hate to say goodbye though we wish you the best of luck.
After over 2 ½ years we have to say goodbye to our beloved Captain William “Bill” Scott who has been promoted to Commander and leaving Mission Area. His new assignment, he’ll be going to West Bureau near Wilshire Division.. Captain Scott was promoted to Captain in May of 2007 and joined Mission Area as the Mission Patrol Division Commander. In 2008 he was assigned to Special Assistant at Office of Operations and by mid 2009 he returned to Mission Area as the stations Commander.
Best of luck Commander Scott, you will be truly missed. Thanks for all you have done for Mission Area, for the morale at the station, the Community Police Advisory Board, our youth and all communities within Mission Division.
This Boy Scout Troop has volunteered their efforts to improve Mission Hills numerous times. Please help support Troop 104 as they continue their 56-year tradition of selling fresh Christmas trees!

San Fernando Valley—The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) may close the connectors and ramps listed below as part of a $140 million improvement project to construct High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lanes and a direct HOV lane connector at the I-5/SR-170 interchange. Closures are subject to change. Detours will be signed.
The following northbound I-5 on- and off-ramps will be closed through January 2012: Sheldon St., Osborne St., Van Nuys Blvd. (off-ramp only).
The southbound I-5 Van Nuys Boulevard on-ramp will be closed through January 2012.
About the Project
Caltrans is constructing an HOV lane in each direction on I-5 between the Hollywood Freeway (SR-170) and SR-118, a distance of 6.8 miles (3.4 miles in each direction). The project is also widening four undercrossings, replacing sections of pavement, and building a direct HOV connector at the I-5/SR-170 interchange. A direct HOV connector allows for freeway-to-freeway transfers without exiting the carpool lane.
This project will alleviate congestion, encourage carpooling, improve air quality, and provide a smoother ride for motorists. The work is part of Caltrans’ effort to provide motorists with a seamless carpool lane network in California.
Work began in August 2010 and is on track for completion in late 2013. Caltrans thanks motorists for their patience and understanding during construction.
