I-710 Full Freeway Closures begin this weekend

Motorists travelling Interstate 710 this weekend from just south of Atlantic/Bandini Boulevards to Imperial Highway will navigate through 2 full freeway closures, detours, a 45 mph construction zone, and delays. Beginning Friday, August 5 at midnight until Saturday at 6 am, I-710 will fully close in both directions within these limits. The good news is that for 40 hours beginning Saturday at 6 am, one side of the freeway -using only 5 lanes - will open for all motorists (except those with oversized loads) until Sunday at 11 pm when the second full freeway closure begins. All lanes will re-open for the Monday morning (8/8) commute. The on-going work involves removing aging pavement and replacing it with Long Life Pavement. Ten full freeway closures in this location are planned each weekend through October.
