This bridge rehabilitation project will require sections of guardrail and overhead portion of the Temple Avenue bridge to be demolished and reconstructed.  As part of this project, the Spring Street on-ramp onto southbound I-405 will be closed until late 2014.  

This project began in January 2014 and is expected to finish in late 2014.  The contractor on this $2.5 million project is DW Powell Construction Inc. of Fontana, California.  The project is funded through the State Highway and Operations Protection Program (SHOPP).
