Eastbound SR-60 Lane Closures Tonight

Montebello — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close up to three lanes on eastbound Pomona Freeway (State Route 60) from Wilcox Avenue to Paramount Boulevard at 9 p.m. (12/22) until 5 a.m.

Tonight’s work involves boring, soil testing and pavement striping.

The northbound Paramount Boulevard on-ramp to westbound SR-60 is closed temporarily. The southbound Paramount Boulevard on-ramp to eastbound SR-60 is closed indefinitely. All other ramps are open.

The lane closures are part of a construction project that is replacing the Paramount Boulevard bridge, which was damaged December 14 after a tanker truck caught fire on eastbound SR-60 at Paramount Boulevard.

Closures are subject to change. Detours will be signed.

The latest freeway traffic information can be obtained on the Caltrans website ( by accessing the Quickmaps feature under ‘Highlights.’
