Your Questions Answered: Lane Closure Info

Question: I like to avoid construction zones when possible so I don't get caught in a backup. How can I find out about closure locations and times?

Answer: There's an easy way to get information about closures -- visit the Planned Lane Closures page on the Caltrans website. Just enter the freeway, date(s) and time period, and you'll be given a list of all the closures for the area you designated, including lane, ramp and connector closures. Keep in mind that the closures listed are primarily construction closures, so maintenance and emergency closures won't be included.

Also, if you live or work next to a major construction project, give us a call at (213) 897-3656 and we can add you to the closure distribution list for the project, which means you'll get a weekly list of closures delivered to your in-box automatically.
