210 closures this weekend in Pasadena
PASADENA — The 210 freeway near Pasadena will be closed this weekend, from Friday night until Monday morning. Pavement work is prompting this closure, with additional closures two weeks from now.
According to a Pasadena Police Department advisory message, Caltrans will shut down part of the westbound I-210 Freeway, near Highway 134, between Lake Avenue and Mountain Street. The two separate closures are scheduled for:
- 10 p.m., Friday, July 15 to 5 a.m., Monday, July 18, 2016
- 10 p.m., Friday, July 29 to 5 a.m., Monday, August 1, 2016
The eastbound Highway 134 connector to the westbound I-210 will be closed. The westbound offramps for Marengo Avenue and Mountain Street, and the onramp at Walnut Street will also be closed.
Caltrans urged motorists to use caution while driving in the freeway construction area. “Be extra alert and follow all freeway detour signs if you must travel through the area,” officials said. “Motorists should consider seeking alternative routes to avoid this part of I-210 during the closures.”
Officials also stressed that the freeway closures would not affect local businesses.
“Pasadena remains open for business and welcomes everyone to visit, dine and shop here instead of being stuck in freeway traffic!”
