INDUSTRY (CBSLA.com) — A series of 55-hour weekend closures on the Pomona (60) Freeway in Industry will begin Friday night, possibly causing traffic delays in the San Gabriel Valley.
The closures, which Caltrans calls “Summer Slam,” will affect lanes in both directions between Nogales Street and Fullerton Road for pavement rehabilitation work, officials said.
Three westbound lanes will be shut down from 10 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday, and the entire westbound side of the freeway will be closed from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. on Saturday and Monday. The closures will continue for an additional three non-consecutive weekends through Aug. 26.
“The Summer Slam is about safety, and we want to make sure the motor republic is able to get to where they need to get safely,” Peter Jones, Public Affairs Officer for Caltrans District 7, told KNX1070.
