The California Department of Transportation plans to fully close a segment of the eastbound I-210 Foothill Freeway on Monday, August 27 at 11:55 p.m. until 5 a.m. Tuesday, August 28 for an overhead sign installation near Ocean View Blvd.
Motorists traveling on eastbound I-210 will be diverted to the Ocean View Blvd. off-ramp and can immediately get back on the freeway using the Ocean View Blvd. on-ramp. A signed detour will be posted for motorists who need to connect to southbound State Route 2 (SR-2).
An additional full evening closure may occur the following two evenings if the installation is not completed.
Motorists should expect delays and are strongly advised to use alternate routes or avoid the area. Drivers are advised to plan ahead, and can check real-time traffic information using the Caltrans QuickMap, or by downloading the QuickMap app for free on any iPhone or Android device.
The work on I-210 is part of a $148.5 million pavement rehabilitation project for a 9.7-mile section from the La Crescenta-Montrose area of Los Angeles County to Pasadena.
Caltrans reminds drivers to be “Work Zone Alert” and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
