The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has scheduled a series of 55-hour lane closures on the eastbound and westbound Pomona Freeway (SR-60) between the Long Beach (I-710) and San Gabriel River (I-605) freeways. The closures are necessary to perform pavement rehabilitation work that will extend the life of the existing lanes by a minimum of 40 years and improve ride quality. Currently, construction is ongoing Monday through Saturday, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., with an enforced speed limit of 50 mph throughout the work zone. All 55-hour lane closures will be limited to Friday through Monday, 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., to minimize traffic impacts.  

The 55-hour lane closures are as follows and subject to change:

Friday, January 8, at 10 p.m. – Monday, January 11, at 5 a.m.

Eastbound SR-60 

Lane Replacement between Greenwood Avenue and Paramount Boulevard

Friday, January 22, at 10 p.m. – Monday, January 25, at 5 a.m.

Friday, January 29, at 10 p.m. – Monday, February 1, at 5 a.m.

Residents and local businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations and dust associated with construction activities. Detour signs will be posted. Although NOT a full freeway closure, connectors and onramps will be affected. Motorists should expect delays and are strongly advised to use alternate routes.
