Major Freeway Construction to Impact Commuters on SR-60 and SR-170

 The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) this week warned residents of four upcoming 55-hour closures on the Pomona Freeway (SR-60), as well as full and partial closures of the I-710 connector under the $120 million pavement replacement project.

The SR-60 freeway closures between Nogales Street and Fullerton Road began on July 12 and will continue for three non-consecutive weekends through August 26. The partial freeway closures are expected to cause major delays.

In addition, Caltrans warned that a full closure of the southbound I-710 connector to southbound I-5 will take place over the weekend of June 29 to July 1 beginning this Saturday, June 29 at 6 p.m. through Monday, July 1 at 6 a.m. The northbound I-5 connector to northbound I-710 will be closed from 8 p.m. Saturday, June 29 through 6 a.m. Monday, July 1.

Caltrans advises drivers allow extra time when traveling, find alternate routes and limit driving in that area.
