55-Hour Lane Closure on Pomona Fwy Aug. 28-31


LOS ANGELES COUNTY The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has scheduled a series of 55-hour lane closures on the eastbound and westbound Pomona Freeway (SR-60) between the Long Beach (I-710) and San Gabriel River (I-605) freeways. The closures are necessary to perform pavement rehabilitation work that will extend the life of the existing lanes by a minimum of 40 years and improve ride quality. Currently, construction is ongoing Monday through Saturday, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., with an enforced speed limit of 50 mph throughout the work zone. All 55-hour lane closures will be limited to Friday through Monday, 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., to minimize traffic impacts. 

 The 55-hour lane closures are as follows and subject to change:

 Friday, August 28, at 10 p.m. – Monday, August 31, at 5 a.m.

Westbound SR-60

 Residents and local businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations and dust associated with construction activities. Detour signs will be posted. Although NOT a full freeway closure, connectors and onramps will be affected. Motorists should expect delays and are strongly advised to use alternate routes.
