TRAFFIC ALERT ROUND 2 ~ The second Caltrans closure of the 210 (Foothill) Freeway at the San Gabriel River Bridge will begin on Wednesday, August 17 at 10:00 PM, this time resulting in a full closure of the eastbound lanes of the 210 freeway. This closure is due to continued major upgrades to the freeway bridge over the San Gabriel River in the city of Irwindale.
During this closure, freeway traffic will be diverted from the eastbound 210 onto the westbound 210, which will be converted to three-lanes in both directions between the 605 (San Gabriel) Freeway and Irwindale Avenue.
As part of this project, the following closures will take place beginning Wednesday, August 17th at 10:00 PM through Tuesday, August 23rd, at 5:00 AM:
🚧 Eastbound 210 from the the 605 Freeway to Irwindale Avenue
🚧 Westbound 210 Irwindale Avenue on-ramps
🚧 Westbound 210 to southbound 605 connector
🚧 605 to eastbound 210 connector
🚧 Eastbound 210 Mount Olive on-ramps
Additional detours will divert freeway traffic onto city streets to accommodate the closure of the 210/605 connector. These detours will include the following surface streets:
🚧 Arrow Highway between Live Oak Avenue and Citrus Avenue
🚧 Live Oak Avenue between Arrow Highway and the 605 Freeway
🚧 Los Angeles Street between the 605 Freeway and Baldwin Park Blvd.
🚧 Ramona Blvd. between the 605 Freeway and Baldwin Park Blvd.
🚧 Rivergrade Road between Live Oak Avenue and Lower Azusa Road
🚧 Baldwin Park Blvd. between Ramona Blvd. and Live Oak Avenue
🚧 Irwindale Avenue between Arrow Highway and the 210 Freeway
🚧 Azusa Avenue between Arrow Highway and the 210 Freeway
🚧 Citrus Avenue between Arrow Highway and the 210 Freeway
The Irwindale Police Department and Caltrans advise motorists to expect major delays on all of the listed freeways and surface streets during this time period. We ask you to use alternate routes such as the 10 (San Bernardino) Freeway or the 60 (Pomona) Freeway. Please also consider the use public transportation such as the Metro L Line (Gold) or the Metrolink during this closure.
