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

Caltrans will continue to re-pave lanes on US 101 Hollywood, Friday, August 14. Closures will occur on Friday and Saturday nights.  Motorists should expect delays and consider alternate routes. 

Upcoming Closures:
Friday, August 21 to Sunday, August 23
Northbound US 101, Normandie Avenue to Sunset Boulevard

The timeframes 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.

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. 

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.  

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. 

The California Highway Patrol will be on duty.  Remember to Be Work Zone Alert.
