HARBOR FREEWAY (SR-110) AUXILIARY LANES PROJECT

If you've driven on the Harbor Freeway (SR-110) in Downtown Los Angeles, you have probably seen the construction project between Sixth St. and Pico Blvd.  This project will improve the flow of traffic through this busy section of freeway which receives an average of 253,000 vehicles a day (more vehicles on the road than the populations of several cities in Los Angeles County).


On the southbound side construction crews will widen the 11th St. bridge, a portion of the Santa Monica Freeway (I-10) connector, and the merging area at the 8th St. on-ramp.  Crews will construct an additional lane on the mainline from the Olympic Blvd. undercrossing to 6th St., on the northbound side.

The project is progressing well, as the southbound Olympic Blvd. off-ramp opened on July 10, 2012.  This $55 million project is expected be complete by summer of 2013.

As a reminder, Caltrans advises motorists to “Slow For The Cone Zone.”
