The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced plans to temporarily close the westbound I-210 (Foothill Freeway) connector to Del Mar Boulevard and California Boulevard exit for tunnel upgrades.
The closures will be from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily (excluding weekend), and continue through Friday, Oct. 20.
During the closures, crews will wash and repaint the tunnel.
The closures are subject to change based on the progress of the work.
Detour signs will be posted, but motorists may experience delays and should plan ahead.
The closures are part a $148.5 million pavement rehabilitation project for a 9.7 mile section of I-210 from the La Crescenta-Montrose area of Glendale to Pasadena.
The project started in Spring 2015, and is scheduled to be complete in Summer 2018.
