Structure Fire Damages/Closes Sections of I-110

Northbound Interstate-110 was closed from Interstate 10 to US Highway 101 due to a structure fire on Temple and Fremont in downtown Los Angeles. The fire began at 1:21 a.m.

The fire damaged an overhead sign structure, pavement markers, bridge joints and guard rail. Caltrans Maintenance crews are removing the sign panel. There is no structural damage to the pavement. It is safe to travel under the truss, but work is being done when traffic load is lighter. An emergency contract with Peterson-Chase is in place and these crews will work tonight to place K-rail and remove the truss. NB 110 will be fully closed tonight at I-10 from 1 a.m. to 4 a.m. with the freeway re-opening by 5 a.m.

Lanes 1 through 3 re-opened on NB 110 at 9 a.m. The connector from NB 110 to NB 101 is open; NB 110 to SB 101 remains closed but is expected to re-open at 5 p.m. The collector road adjacent to NB 101 is closed at 6th Street. 

Update 12/9 - All lanes of northbound I-110 opened at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, December 9.
