Closures on Ocean Boulevard Planned Saturday, Feb. 16
Final phase of roadwork to be completed this weekend
February 12, 2013
Ocean Boulevard between downtown Long Beach and the Gerald Desmond Bridge will be closed during the day Saturday, Feb. 16, for re-striping to complete a repaving project. Both directions will be closed, but at different times.
The closures are scheduled as follows:
• 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., workers will close eastbound Ocean, and the on-ramp from Pico Avenue to the westbound Gerald Desmond Bridge. The connection from eastbound Desmond Bridge to northbound 710 Freeway will remain open.
• 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., workers will close westbound Ocean. The connection from southbound 710 Freeway to westbound Desmond Bridge will be closed.
See an enlarged map of the project area.
The project had been planned for the previous weekend, but rainfall prevented its completion.
The Port of Long Beach is committed to keeping Harbor District roadways maintained in good condition and to minimizing the impacts of construction on motorists and businesses.
