The Port of Long Beach was a top awards winner at the California Association of Public Information Officials Annual Convention in Santa Barbara. CAPIO, the state's premier association for government communications, recognized the best in the field during an awards ceremony April 10.
The southbound I-710 (Long Beach) Freeway connector to westbound Ocean Boulevard is scheduled to close in early May so it can be demolished as part of the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project.
The long-term closure is tentatively set to start at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 10. The date is subject to change. The connector to be demolished links the southbound I-710 to the existing westbound Desmond Bridge/Ocean Boulevard.
The Pico Avenue exit from the southbound 710 Freeway will close several nights April 16-25 to allow for widening of the off-ramp. The closures will go from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
