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 (www.dot.ca.gov) by accessing the Quickmaps feature under ‘Highlights.’
