Brace yourselves! RoseJam continues this weekend as Caltrans closes the eastbound Foothill Freeway (I-210) between Mountain Street and Lake Avenue in Pasadena for 34-hours on two separate weekends. The first closure will begin Saturday, August 13 at 7 p.m. and continue through Monday, August 15 at 5 a.m.
The closures are part of a $148.5 million pavement rehabilitation project, where over 77 freeway lanes miles along I-210 between Glendale and Pasadena are being improved. Once the project is completed in 2019, the new surface will provide a smoother, safer drive for motorists and minimize the need for further lane closures in the future.
So what should you do to prepare for the second round of RoseJam closures? First, we recommend that you avoid the area. Not only will you likely be stuck in traffic and experience heavy delays on eastbound I-210, but as an active construction site, vehicles and workers will be entering and exiting the work zone. Should you have weekend plans and need to use I-210, we strongly advise you to plan ahead, use alternate routes, and check traffic conditions before leaving by calling 511 or visiting the Caltrans QuickMap.
