If you are planning a weekend getaway and are heading through Pasadena, you may want to find an alternative route. Caltrans will be closing all the lanes on the westbound I-210 freeway between Lake Avenue and Mountain Street for the entire weekend. The closure is scheduled to begin this Friday, July 29th at 10:00 pm and last until Monday, August 1st at 5:00 am. Caltrans has warned drivers that the closures will cause significant delays and motorists should plan accordingly and check traffic conditions before leaving.
The temporary closure is part of a pavement rehabilitation project in both directions of the 210 freeway and will “provide a smoother drive for motorists” when it is completed in 2018, according to Caltrans.
For up to the date traffic information during this closure and any other time, motorists can call 511 or check http://quickmap.dot.ca.gov/ before they leave.
