710 Freeway closures set

June 5, 2007

Expect overnight closures on the Long Beach (710) Freeway through Sunday, June 10, on both southbound and northbound lanes from Ocean Boulevard to Pacific Coast Highway, as Caltrans repaves roadway and replaces the center median.

Work started with an overnight shift that began Monday evening. The final construction will be conducted on overnight shifts starting Saturday evening, June 9, and going into Sunday morning, June 10. The workers will be replacing pavement, removing metal-beam center medians and replacing them with concrete medians.

Monday night, June 4 through Friday, June 8:
-- 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. - up to three lanes of northbound I-710 from W. Shoreline Drive to PCH (SR-1).
-- 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. - up to two lanes southbound I-710 from PCH (SR- 1) to W. Shoreline Drive.
-- 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. – northbound and southbound I-710 on- and off-ramps at W. Shoreline Drive.

Overnight, Friday, June 8:
-- 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. - up to three lanes of northbound I-710 from W. Shoreline Drive to PCH (SR-1).
-- 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. - up to three lanes of southbound I-710 from PCH (SR-1) to W. Shoreline Drive.
-- 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. – northbound I-710 on-ramps at Harbor Scenic Drive and W. Shoreline Drive. 
-- 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. - southbound I-710 off-ramp to W. Shoreline Drive.

Overnight, Saturday, June 9:
-- 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. – up to four lanes of northbound I-710 from W. Shoreline Drive to PCH (SR-1).

The $5.6 million project is estimated to be completed in fall of 2008.  The benefits of this pavement improvement project are a smoother driving surface and an extended life span of the road. 

For the safety of work crews on the freeway, Caltrans reminds the public to please

"Slow for the Cone Zone."
