MONTEREY PARK (CBSLA.com) — San Gabriel Valley and East LA motorists be advised – the Long Beach (710) Freeway in the Monterey Park area will be shut down all weekend for road work.

According to Caltrans, the southbound 710 Freeway will have only one lane open between the San Bernardino (10) and Pomona (60) freeways to accommodate the placement of concrete slabs.

Connector ramps from the 10 Freeway to the southbound 710 will also be closed.

The closures begin at 10 p.m. and are scheduled to continue until 5 a.m. Monday.

The work is part of a $120 million pavement replacement project on the 710 Freeway between the Century (105) Freeway and the 10. The project is scheduled to be completed later this year.
