55-Hour Closure Scheduled For 210 Freeway In Sylmar Starting Friday Night

SYLMAR (CBSLA) — A stretch of the westbound 210 Freeway will be closed in Sylmar this weekend for paving work, Caltrans announced.

The westbound 210 will be closed for 55 hours between Roxford Street and the 5 Freeway starting at 10 p.m. Friday and last until 5 a.m. Monday, according to Caltrans.

The westbound 210 Freeway on-ramps at Polk, Roxford and Yarnell streets will also be closed along with off-ramps at Yarnell and Paxton streets.

Motorists are advised to use the 118 Freeway as an alternate route. Caltrans is advising residents and businesses in the area that they may be affected by noise, vibrations and dust associated with the scheduled work.

The work is part of a $135.5 million project replacing all lanes of the 210 Freeway with new pavement from Wheatland Avenue to the 5 Freeway.

Overhead signs, traffic loop detectors, center median barriers and guardrails will also be upgraded during the project.
