Caltrans to Open I-10 by Monday Morning Commute, Weeks Ahead of Original Estimate
“What began as months has turned into days — before Angelenos hit the road on Monday, we’re opening the 10 back up. Thanks to the tireless work of Caltrans and union construction crews and with help from our partners — from the Mayor’s office to the White House — the 10’s expedited repair is proof and a point of pride that here in California, we deliver.”
“The work that happened here is extraordinary. It was possible with the will and ambition of the workers on the ground, and their commitment as public servants and as union members to get this done and deliver for the people of Los Angeles. This is the kind of work that is happening around the country – where hard-working men and women, carpenters, laborers, and government workers, are rebuilding America’s infrastructure. Thank you to those workers for your commitment to the country.”
“Our great thanks go to the contractors and their workers who have been working so hard and around the clock, and the Caltrans teams for their tireless energy and dedication to public service. Thanks to the city of Los Angeles and all Angelenos for their patience at this time.”
- Six newly installed video cameras are providing live coverage of construction operations 24/7 at fixthe10.ca.gov.
- Completion of the shoring has been accomplished by more than 250 people working at the jobsite on 12-hour shifts, 24 hours a day.
- Final adjustments of shoring are being completed today.
- Caltrans safety inspection is underway, a critical step before the freeway reopens.
- Crews are repairing damaged electrical systems, lane striping and signs, and moving k-rail temporary concrete barriers on I-10.
- Security is providing around-the-clock coverage at the jobsite to minimize the economic impact on nearby businesses so they, their employees, customers, and suppliers can safely continue their activities.
- The westbound I-10 Alameda Street off-ramp will remain closed as a staging area for repair operations, which will continue below the elevated roadway.
Security Paving Co. of Westlake Village and Griffith Co. of Brea are the contractors working on repairs. Caltrans recommends motorists avoid the closure area or take alternate routes, plan for closures by checking the Caltrans QuickMap, or taking public transit to their destination.
