The efforts are part of the statewide Clean California initiative to clean up trash and debris and beautify public areas along highways and will allow crews to conduct maintenance in an efficient manner and access areas that might otherwise be unsafe.

On Saturday, April 23, northbound SR-125 will be fully closed from Jamacha Boulevard to State Route 94 (SR-94) from 4 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The Northbound SR-125 connector at the northbound SR-125 toll road (South Bay Expressway) will also be closed along with the northbound SR-125 on- and off-ramps.

The detours for both closures are as follows:

  • Northbound SR-125 Connector: If heading north on SR-125, take westbound State Route 54 (SR-54) to northbound I-805. Continue north to the eastbound SR-94 and transition north to the SR-125.
  • Eastbound 94 Connector to northbound SR-125: Motorists on eastbound SR-94 will be detoured to exit at Jamacha Road/Paradise Valley Road and head west on Paradise Valley Road to westbound SR-54, to northbound I-805, to eastbound SR-94 to SR-125.

During this time, multiple crews will use the full freeway closures to remove litter and graffiti, repair roads, fill potholes and gaps, fix signs and safety barriers, clean storm drains, conduct electrical work, and create defensible space for fire safety. Adopt-A-Highway volunteers will contribute to the litter removal efforts. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead to find other routes, if possible.

Crews will close southbound SR-125 from SR-94 to Jamacha Road Saturday, April 30, from 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. The closure includes the southbound SR-125 on- and off-ramps.
