CANCELED! No Full Closure on I-710 this Weekend

Caltrans has canceled a Full Freeway Closure scheduled on the Long Beach Freeway (I-710) this weekend (September 23-26) as part of the Long Life Pavement Rehabilitation Project from Firestone Boulevard to Slauson Avenue in several communities from Bell to Downey.

Each weekend since August 5, 2011, Caltrans has conducted a series of six consecutive full freeway closures on this route in both directions. The next full freeway closure is scheduled for Friday, September 30 through Monday, October 3

But, nightly weeknight work will take place beginning Sunday, September 25 through Thursday, September 29. Some minor work will take place in the center median - in both directions - to prepare for the next series of Extended Weekend Closures. Two lanes in each direction between Firestone Boulevard and Slauson Avenue will be closed to re-stripe lanes and to place a moveable median barrier on the southbound I-710 center median. No ramps will be closed within these limits.
