Summer Slam on 60: Some interesting facts

You may have wondered what construction crews will be doing inside of the 55-hour closure between Nogales St. and Fullerton Rd. that will require you to find other ways around the area:
  • Excavate over 4,400 cubic yards of damaged pavement, or about 50 average-size swimming pools work of concrete.
  • The excavated materials will require over 400 large dump trucks to haul away.
  • Pour approximately 3,400 cubic yards of cement or 380 cement trucks worth, which is enough for 680 2-car residential driveways.
If you have any question, please contact Public Affairs Officer Peter Jones at 213-897-0106.
The closures will occur between Fullerton Rd. and Nogales St.
