Hollywood Freeway (US 101) Pavement Project from Downtown Los Angeles to Hollywood

Caltrans will begin a pavement rehabilitation project on US 101 from the US 101/SR-110 interchange to Pilgrimage Bridge in Hollywood (6.6 miles), Friday July 31.  So far, 58 of the 62 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) curb ramps have been completed and 48 of the on- and off-ramps in the project area have been repaved with rubberized hot mix asphalt.  Closures will occur on Friday and Saturday nights. 

Motorists should expect delays and consider alternate routes.

The time frames for the closures are as follows:
Fridays and Saturdays:
Up to one lane - 11 p.m. to 11 a.m.
Up to two lanes - 11 p.m. to 9 a.m.
Up to three lanes - 1 a.m. to 7a.m.

Saturday and Sundays:
Up to one lane - 11 p.m. to 12 p.m.
Up to two lanes - 11 p.m. to 10 a.m.
Up to three lanes - 1 a.m. to 8 a.m.

Upcoming Closures:
Friday, July 31 to Sunday, August 2
Northbound US 101, Normandie Avenue to Western Avenue
Northbound US 101, Western Avenue to Hollywood Boulevard

Precast Jointed Concrete Pavement (PJCP) will be used at several locations within the project area.   PJCP panels are cast and cured at a plant off-site and then trucked to the construction location and installed using a crane to help reduce closure times and maintenance costs.

This $19.26 million project was awarded to OHL USA Inc. from Irvine, California. The project is funded by the State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) and is expected to finish by the end of 2016.
