"Swarm" Maintenance of Downtown Four Level Interchange

Thanks Angelenos for Slowing for the Cone Zone and Moving Over during Sunday’s “swarm” maintenance operation in Downtown Los Angeles.

Also, a big thanks to the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) for their assistance with detours on city streets.

To spruce up and overhaul the historic Hollywood Freeway (US 101)/Harbor Freeway (I-110), Caltrans deployed 300 Department personnel and community service workers into closed portions of the southbound I-110/Hollywood Freeway (US 101) interchange between 3rd Street and Wilshire Boulevard on Sunday, November 4, from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Although the closure may have delayed a few motorists traveling through downtown, Caltrans was able to save thousands of taxpayer dollars, reduce the need for future closures, enhance the safety of the corridor, and improve the aesthetics of the landscape.
