A section of the eastbound I-210 Foothill Freeway which brings traffic into Pasadena from the northwest will be closed between 12 a.m. and 5 a.m. on Wednesday from the southbound State Route 2 (Glendale Freeway) connector to Berkshire Place to allow crews to continue restriping lanes, the California Department of Transportation has announced.
Caltrans added that depending on the progress of the work, another overnight closure may be needed from 12 a.m. to 5 a.m. on Thursday.
Caltrans said motorists traveling on eastbound I-210 will be diverted to southbound State Route 2, and are advised to take eastbound State Route 134 (Ventura Freeway) to access I-210 for the meantime. Motorists are also reminded to be “Work Zone Alert” and “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
Motorists may visit Caltrans Quickmap, quickmap.dot.ca.gov. or download the QuickMap app for free on any iPhone or Android device for real-time information on lane or ramp closures, CalTrans said.
The restriping of lanes on I-210 is part of a $148.5 million pavement rehabilitation project from the La Crescenta-Montrose area of Glendale to Pasadena, according to CalTrans. The project started in Spring 2015, and is scheduled to be complete in Summer 2018.
In addition to repaving roads and restriping lanes, crews are also replacing concrete median barriers and guardrails, upgrading electrical and lighting to tunnels, and reconstructing curb ramps to meet Americans with Disability Act (ADA) requirements.
Once finished, the new repaved surface will provide a smoother drive for motorists and reduce the need for maintenance and further closures, CalTrans said.
