Harbor Scenic Drive southbound and northbound directions will be closed on three weekends starting Feb. 25-26 as crews repair the roadway. Detours will be available using a combination of Pico Avenue and Harbor Plaza for heavy-duty vehicles; while cars and pickup trucks will also have the option of using Queensway Bridge to access the area from Downtown.
The closures take place on Harbor Scenic between Harbor Plaza and Ocean Boulevard and will alternate between southbound and northbound. Closures will start 5 a.m. Saturdays and go to 5 p.m. Sundays. They may open up sooner, but that will be determined by how fast the work goes.
