Up to date traffic conditions L.A. to Yountville via the 5

We are heading up to Yountville from the Torrance area this coming Wednesday for an obligation more than vacation. We will want to take the 5 up (not our usual route) but hear of the construction on the 405. Any opinion on maybe taking the 110 to the 101 to the 170 to the 5? We also know this is a busy July 4th weekend. We will be returning on July 2nd. We'll take the 101 down and stay a night in Santa Ynez to avoid the afternoon LA traffic. Any ideas would be appreciated!!!

The 405 will be ok. The 110-101-170-5 route will probably have just as much traffic this upcoming Wed morning than the 405 route. The construction will not affect you this Wednesday.

You've posted a question about LA freeways in the Yountville forum. You would probably get more responses in the LA forum.

As far as getting to Yountville, you could run into some serious traffic on I-680 if coming in from 5 and 580 on a Wednesday afternoon. If you will be reaching the Bay Area after 3pm, you might consider taking 5 to Lodi and then CA 12 to Napa instead. It's a longer distance but there should be less traffic and no toll.
