Fix the 10
Interstate 10 Now Open! Thank You Los Angeles for your Patience.
Caltrans worked around the clock with CAL FIRE, California Highway Patrol, and local agencies to reopen I-10 as quickly as possible. Governor Newsom proclaimed a state of emergency in Los Angeles County to help facilitate clean up and repair work to better help this key transportation corridor safely re-open.
