The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will conduct ten weekends of 53-hour Extended Closures and Full Freeway Closures on the Long Beach Freeway (I-710) as part of the Long Life Pavement Rehabilitation Project from the Glenn Anderson Freeway (I-105) connector to Atlantic Boulevard. The project is to rehabilitate aging pavement and provide the roadway with several decades of service life, improved pavement performance and a smoother ride for the traveling public.
EXTENDED WEEKEND CLOSURES are scheduled for the following weekends:
- August: 5-8; 12-15; 19-22; 26-29
- September: 9-12; 16-19; 23-26; 30-October 3 (No construction Sept.2-5, Labor Day)
- October: 7-10; 14-17
CLOSED on-ramps to northbound I-710:
- Eastbound & westbound on-ramps from Imperial Highway, Firestone Blvd. and Florence Ave.
CLOSED on-ramps to southbound I-710:
- Eastbound & westbound on-ramps from Atlantic Blvd., Florence Ave. and Firestone Boulevard
CLOSED off-ramps from southbound I-710:
- Eastbound & westbound off-ramps at Florence Ave. and Firestone Boulevard
CLOSED Freeway Connectors:
- Eastbound & westbound I-105 to northbound I-710
FULL FREEWAY CLOSURES will occur in both directions and twice during each weekend Friday at 11:59 p.m. until Saturday at 6 a.m. and again on Sunday at 11 p.m. until Monday at 5 a.m.
Speeds will be reduced to 45 mph. Oversized loads are not permitted during these times due to narrower lane widths. To decrease delay time, motorists are advised to use alternate routes around the project area. All closures are weather permitting, as paving requires temperatures above 50 degrees and dry conditions.
