Los Angeles — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announces that the westbound Interstate 10 (I-10) Alameda Street off-ramp and the westbound I-10 on-ramp from Santa Fe Avenue/Mateo Street/East 8th Street will be open for motorists on Wednesday morning, Nov. 22, before the morning commute.

The shoring below the Alameda Street off-ramp is complete and safety inspections confirmed it can be open to traffic. This is still a construction zone, and the speed limit on the off-ramp is reduced from the normal 35 mph to 25 mph until further notice. Caltrans reminds motorists that traffic fines are doubled in work zones.

Drivers exiting the freeway via the westbound Alameda Street off-ramp will be able to proceed onto westbound 14th Street. However, all other westbound traffic will be prohibited on 14th Street between Lawrence Street and Alameda Street during repairs. Eastbound traffic will be allowed on 14th Street beween Alameda Street and Lawrence Street.

Lawrence Street will remain closed between 14th Street and 10th Street for the duration of the repairs.

Repairs are expected to continue for a period of months after a Nov. 11 fire damaged the elevated freeway.

CAL FIRE believes the fire was caused by arson. Tips or leads can be sent anonymously to the CAL FIRE Arson Hotline at 1-800-468-4408 or The Office of the State Fire Marshal issued a Crime Alert Notification bulletin with information and photos.

  • Six video cameras are providing live coverage of construction operations 24/7 at
  • Some or all lanes on I-10 will be closed at times, primarily at night, for repairs.
  • 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 image shows the ongoing repair work happening while the freeway is open in both directions. Workers on a piece of equipment with a raised platform work on a guardrail from the outside edge of the structure.

Security Paving Co. of Westlake Village and Griffith Co. of Brea are the contractors working on repairs. Caltrans recommends motorists continue to take alternate routes and use public transit when possible, and plan for intermittent lane closures on I-10 by checking the Caltrans QuickMap.
