    Caltrans to Close I-710 Washington Blvd Ramps in Commerce for Five Months
     
    COMMERCE - The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announces the closure of two ramps for approximately five months on northbound and southbound Interstate 710 (I-710) in the city of Commerce for a road resurfacing and bridge widening project.
     
    The following ramps are scheduled to close in January 2020:
     
    • Northbound I-710 Washington Blvd off-ramp
      • Beginning Monday January 6, 2020.
     
    • Southbound I-710 Washington Blvd on-ramp
      • Beginning Monday January 13, 2020 OR Monday January 20, 2020.
     
    The closures will allow crews can work on the bridge widening. Workers will be removing a bridge barrier and connecting the new structure with the current bridge. Crews also will repave the two ramps.
     
    Motorists will be detoured to the Atlantic Blvd. on and off-ramps for the duration of the long-term closure. Drivers can check traffic conditions before they leave by visiting the Caltrans Quickmap. Due to the dynamic nature of construction, please note that all dates and times are subject to change due to unforeseen operational factors or inclement weather.
     
    The work on I-710 is part of a $150.7 million pavement rehabilitation and bridge widening project that stretches 3.7 miles from Bell to East Los Angeles.
     
    Caltrans reminds drivers to be “Work Zone Alert” and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
